This event is an opportunity for beginners and improvers in botanical identification to collectively identify and record plants (and anything else we see) in a relaxed way, learning from each other. It’s based at Carlton Marsh Nature Reserve, Barnsley, where there is a mixture of wetland, wet woodland, lowland fen and grassland habitats.
This event is an opportunity for people who wish to practise and improve their skills in botanical identification, to meet with likeminded people in a relaxed setting to share knowledge and skills.
Led by committee member Clare Cashon, we will walk round Carlton Marsh Nature Reserve, where there is a mixture of wetland, wet woodland, lowland fen and grassland, recording everything we see. We will use field guides, keys and books and work through the features of different plants. The site is also interesting for its bird life.
This event is part of a series of regular events for Yorkshire and Humber members, to build skills, knowledge and confidence in botanical identification, for professional or personal use.
