BSBI / Plantlife : Field Meeting 28th July, St Cyrus, Nr Montrose
Saturday 28 July (Training) St Cyrus NNR (v.c.91)
Especially for beginners & improvers Leaders: Faith Anstey and Aileen Meek Last year's meeting based on the concept of 'finding the family first' was a great success, so we are holding two of these meetings in 2018. They are designed to help beginners and improvers, especially participants of BSBI/Plantlilfe Plant Families Workshops; anyone is welcome to attend. but experienced botanists may find themselves pressed into service to help beginners! The emphasis will be on learning how to pursue identifications in the field, by means of plant families. It will be an advantage to have a copy of the Pocket Guide to Wildflower Families – which will be available on the day – as well as your favourite field guide. The area chosen for this more northern meeting (the other being in Perthshire on 4th August) is a National Nature Reserve, rich in species from common families and also in rare specialities of sand dune and saltmarsh, so there will be more than enough for us to study and identify. Meeting place is at the St Cyrus NNR car park at 10.30am. Further details from firstname.lastname@example.org.
