Beginners botany at the Spetchells, Prudhoe

Sunday 19 July, 10.30am-12.30pm

If you would like to start to learn how to identify some of our wild flowers then this activity is for you! We will start by looking at the parts of the plant and how a little knowledge of this helps to correctly identify plants (not just by looking at the pictures!). We will walk through grassland and by the River Tyne to the vegetated chalk hills (not displaced southern Downs but wartime factory waste) looking at a wide variety of flowers along the way. Bring a plant ID book if you have one.

Free but booking is required to manage numbers. Please contact the Society Office to book.

Leaders: Janet Simkin & Judy Summerson
