For the first Green Lancaster Adventure of the academic year, the Green Lancaster Team and volunteers headed to the beautiful Forest of Bowland AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
The group took a circular route around the base of the stunning Clougha Pike. Along the route, the group passed through meadows and woodland, noticing the diverse biodiversity the AONB had to offer.
Throughout the walk, the group discussed the impact of climate change, habitat fragmentation and invasive non-native species on biodiversity in the AONB.
In response to this, the group discussed the Forest of Bowland’s Nature Recovery Plan. In addition to ensuring the better management of Core Nature Areas and Priority Habitats, one of the key outcomes of the plan is to ensure that people are better connected to nature. It was in this spirit that the group took time to sit, relax and reflect on how we individually and collectively connect to nature.Back to News
