During the age of the dinosaurs an ancient family of plants called horsetails covered the earth growing as large as Oak trees in vast forests. They were an important food source for dinosaurs that would browse the fast growing and resilient plants. Today relatives of the plants grow to a much smaller height and at Titchwell marsh around the fen trail Water Horsetail can be seen with its distinctive tube like appearance.
If you would like to learn more about some of the many other fantastic plants growing on the reserve join us on a wild flower guided walk. We will show you how to name and identify them and talk about the cultural history of many plants.
