Urban Naturalist: Moss - at Manchester Museum on Saturday 28 September

27 Sep 2013

Urban Naturalist is a series of friendly, practical workshops run by leading naturalists

Urban Naturalist logo

The city is sometimes a surprising environment to find amazing wildlife, but mosses are one group that are common, yet often overlooked. These fascinating primitive plants are true pioneers, growing in the corners of our city and sometimes right in front of us. With last year’s wet summer and this year’s mild winter, conditions are perfect for these strange little plants.

Starting at the Museum, find out more about the history, life cycle and diversity of the humble moss. We’ll then head out into the city itself to see how many different mosses we can find. With a bit of luck and a keen eye, we’ll be able to find a whole host of different colours, shapes and sizes. With Russell Hedley from Nature Talks and Walks.
