8. Mon 6 June: Eco Explorers for families: 
Our next after school Eco Explorer adventure will be to the Plantlife Nature Reserve at Winskill Stones. We’ll meet up at St John’s Methodist church car park, planning to leave by 4pm. Please bring a snack. Our venue is Winskill Stones, with plenty of space. We will look at the special flowers in bloom, even though the mass of early purple orchids will be past their best.. There are fossils there, and hopefully moorland birds. Judith will tell us what lichens we find.  We’ll travel in convoy, but Winskill Stones car parking is on the road out of Langcliffe, opposite the track down to Lower Winskill Farm, just over one mile above Langcliffe, just beyond the 2nd cattle grid. Limestone pavement will be slippery if wet, with clints and grykes; flat(tish) rock with water-worn holes. Good fun to walk on, but care needs to be taken. There’s plenty of safer grass covered area though!
If you are interested please contact Sally Waterson or Judith Allinson of Churches Together in Settle and District
0775 3618381
