Refresh or improve your identification skills of chalk grassland plants

This is one of three separate plant identification day courses we are running in different habitats this year. On this course you will spend a whole day exploring a chalk grassland habitat with the aim of identifying the plants found there using hand lenses, identification guides, keys, mobile phone apps and by collecting specimens.

It would be useful if you could bring your own wildflower books, hand lenses and a phone. We recommend Francis Rose's Wild Flower Key, and Fitter, Fitter & Blamey's Wild Flowers of Britain & Ireland.

This course is suitable for those who wish to refresh or improve their plant identification skills. 

The classes are led by Alex Lockton, who has thirty years’ experience working as a lecturer in ecology at Birmingham University and Manchester Metropolitan University, as coordinator of the Botanical Society of the British Isles, and as an ecological consultant. He is author of The Flora and Vegetation of Shropshire (2015).

Fees apply and booking essential.

The cost of this course is £37.50 per person per day.
