BSBI / Plantlife : Field Meeting 4th August, Ballinluig, Perthshire

Saturday 4 August , Ballinluig (v.c.89)

Joint with PSNS, for beginners & improvers. Leader: Faith Anstey "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 especially for beginners and improvers, including participants of BSBI/Plantlilfe Plant Families Workshops and members of the Perthshire Society of Natural Science, but anyone is welcome to attend. 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 is rich in examples of common species from many different families, with one or two rarities thrown in for extra interest, besides being a very pleasant botanising locality beside the silvery Tay".

Meeting place is at NN978520, just off the A9, at 10.30am. Further details from - Booking Essential
