Information Centre:- Please note this walk is on SAT 8 September, Not
on Sun 2 Sept as  described in the Flowers of the Dales Booklet.
led by Judith Allinson on behalf of Plantlife. www.plantlife.org.uk

This is a wonderful footpath – to Janet’s Foss- most of you
will know it – but learning about lichens and algae (from scratch)
gives you an extra reason to walk along it.

Half the photosynthesis in the world is due to Algae.

So half the oxygen we breathe could come from algae.
It would be helpful if you could let me know if you are coming

Free but Donation to to Plantlife and to cover cost of handouts welcome.
