Plant Families Workshop, Fort William

West Inverness-shire 27th July 2024
led by
Aileen Meek, Faith Anstey

The Plant Families workshops are suitable for anyone who can tell a buttercup from a daisy but wants to learn more about plant identification within a structured framework. There will be a mix of classwork, small groups with expert tutors, and fieldwork, following the principle of 'finding the family first'. This is a tried and tested way of getting to grips with ID instead of just playing 'snap' with a field guide or wading through incomprehensible keys.

A copy of the booklet on which the course is based – Pocket Guide to Wildflower Families by Faith Anstey – will be included in the charge for the workshop: £40 (50% discount for BSBI members and full-time students). Places are limited, booking essential.

Join us for the free field meeting for beginners/improvers at Fort William the following day (28th July - link below) and put your learning into practice!
