About the Event

Rocky shores are incredibly diverse, hosting a wide range of marine species all adapted in remarkable

ways to surviving the harsh conditions of the inter-tidal zone. Mark will show you some of these

species and explore how they have evolved to survive fluctuating temperatures, light levels and wave

action and how they interact with each to create this special ecosystem. He will also search out some

species that are particularly suited to West Somerset’s shoreline – some well-established natives and

others more recent invaders – from the ubiquitous limpets, winkles and crabs to Australian barnacles

and Pacific Oysters.

Combine this walk with a chance to visit the new East Quay Art Gallery, Watchet and see “SHIFT – Somerset’s Brilliant Coast” – an art exhibition supported by Somerset Wildlife Trust and Contains Art.
