Event description

Description

Join the Causeway Coast & Glens Hertiage Trust to explore Altikeeragh Blanket Bog nestled high up in the Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and learn about the special wildlife and habitats. The walk will pass through the Altikeeragh Nature Reserve which is one of the finest examples of blanket bog in Northern Ireland, with a network of blanket bog vegetation with some raised bog characteristics, a well-developed pool system and flat bog plains, supporting important peatland vegetation communities. In late May the air will be filled with the call of the Cuckoo and the song of the Skylark with the resident raptors patrolling the skies.

Footwear: Walking boots/Sturdy shoes

Clothing: Check forecast beforehand and dress suitable
