Leicester New Year Plant Hunt

Leicestershire 1st January 2024 11:00am - 3pm
led by
Louise Marsh and Russell Parry

This is the inaugural meeting of the new Leicester Botany group. We will meet at 11am outside Morrison's supermarket, Freeman's Common, Leicester. Postcode LE2 7LT. Grid ref SK 58809 02857.

Our Hunt will last for a maximum of 3 hours and we'll explore the urban habitats around the industrial estate. We've held New Year Plant Hunts at this location before, so it will be interesting to see how the 2024 results compare with previous years.

We can decide on the day if we want to 'stop the clock' midway for half an hour and grab a hot drink and some cake in Morrison's cafe.  The event will go ahead unless the weather is truly awful but please phone before leaving home if you'd like to check.
