Cramond: Coastal Ecology Walk
Join Ecologist Leonie Alexander to discover what can be found along the shore between Silverknowes and Cramond. This walk is organised by Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh and the Restoration Forth project, restoring seagrass and native oyster habitats in the region. We will consider the coastal habitats in this area, take a look at the results of some habitat creation work and identify the wildflowers growing on the coastal strip.
Leonie has worked as an Ecological consultant for over 20 years and more recently as Urban Biodiversity Project Officer at RBGE. She is currently a freelance ecologist involved in Restoration Forth and Lauriston Farm – a regenerative agriculture project in Edinburgh.
Restoration Forth is an ambitious project to start restoring health and biodiversity to the Firth of Forth, it will forge new connections between local communities and the sea. Restoration Forth is managed by WWF, in partnership with scientists, charities, government agencies, and most importantly local community groups.
The meeting point for this walk is Silverknowes Beach Car Park. This walk will be along the promenade which is straight and flat and is suitable for wheelchair users. The total distance of this walk 1.1 miles, but please bear in mind any additional walking distance between public transport or back to your vehicle (this is not a circular walk).
