Mountain environment

Mountain environment

This day is ideal for anyone with an interest in learning more about the mountain environment. People wanting to become Mountain Leaders will find it particularly useful. We will look at many and varied aspects of the mountain environment which will allow you to head to Assessment feeling comfortable that you are able to talk about many topics with confidence. The day will take the form of a walk in the mountains with regular stops to learn about the plants, animals, geology, land use and anything else that crops up!

What will we cover?

During the walk what we cover will be determined to a certain extent by the questions asked on the day and the time of year. I keep numbers small and this helps us to be flexible. We will however look at the following:

Flora and fauna
Land use past and present
Access and the environment
Geology

Dates 2017

12th March
5th May
20th May
1st July
4th September

Are there any pre-requisites to me attending?

You must be fit enough to complete a days walk in the mountains at a leisurely pace . We will not cover any scrambling terrain and there will be regular stops.

Cost

£60 or £50 if booking with another course. Many people like to book along with a Mountain Leader Assessment or refresher days in navigation or hazards of steep ground.

“Hi Lou, Thanks very much for the photos, a different perspective to the ones we took as you're above us! We had a fantastic day. The boys were really impressed with their endeavours and we were all a bit stiff the following day. I'd really like to thank you for the great instruction and making everyone feel safe and involved at all times and answering all of our endless questions! ”
