Workshop description:
For anyone who considers themselves a total or near beginner to plant recording then please come along to this workshop where the aim will be to teach participants how to identify wildflowers through recognising their families and to help you build up your confidence in using identification keys. We’ll explore the plant kingdom and the botanical terms used to describe plants, but don’t panic as there will be helpful hand-outs and freshly collected plant specimens to help you practice and improve your identification skills.

Health & Safety:
Please be mindful that this workshop includes an element of teaching outdoors. Warm waterproof clothing and footwear are essential. As a rule of thumb, it is generally expected that any participants who sign up for a workshop that involves spending time in the outdoors will own and bring the appropriate outdoor clothing.
