A wonderfully diverse world of wild flowers surrounds us, yet their names and fascinating characteristics remain a mystery to many of us. Learning to identify our native flora gives new pleasures and an understanding of your environment every time you step outside. It is also the first step for many seeking careers in the environmental sector.
Join ecologist Alex Morss on our two-day beginner’s course to discover more about our local flora and learn how to identify what’s around you.
We will focus on some of the most common flower families, introduce some wild species and show you how to recognise them. You will learn and try out the basic methods and resources used by botanists to identify plants, and be supported as you apply your new skills in the field and the classroom.
You will also find out how evolution has shaped their amazing designs and how plants reveal fascinating messages about where they grow, their pollination, defence and seed dispersal.
Course costs per person : £80
