Lorn Natural History Group’s first monthly field trip of 2020 is to  Dunollie Wood.

The area was recently taken over by the Woodland Trust to conserve and manage its remnants of ancient Atlantic woodland.

LNHG members will be searching little-visited areas of the woods on Saturday January 18 searching for bryophytes and lichens, which are one of the woods’ key features.

The place to meet on the day is at Corran Halls car park at 10am.

Bring a packed lunch and hot drink, wear suitable clothing and be prepared for terrain on a slope that could be tricky.
