BSBI / Plantlife Identifying Plant Families Workshops

We plan to hold two Identifying Plant Families workshops this year, one on Saturday 13th May at Eglington Country Park near Irvine and another on Saturday 20th May in Glasgow. There will also be two field meetings especially for workshop participants and other beginners/improvers.

Beginners are welcome to attend these workshops which aim to teach how to identify wild flowers through recognising their families. The workshops also help to build confidence in using identifications keys. 

These highly acclaimed workshops are led by Dr Faith Anstey, assisted by BSBI tutors, and consist of a Saturday morning in the classroom and much of the afternoon out in the field. For further details, see the poster and to book, please click here… Or read an account of a Plant Families Workshop here
