This beginners course is designed for anyone with a relatively recent or renewed interest in wild flowers, who would like to see a good variety of species and learn more about how to identify them correctly.
By looking carefully at the different parts of a flower to appreciate their structure and function and then using similarities and differences between them, you’ll be able to develop a good working knowledge of the main flower families and learn how to use a flora to track down unknown species.
Visits to local nature reserves and other flower-rich sites each day will be complemented by identification sessions in the evenings.
The content is also appropriate for anyone wishing to contribute to their Continuing Professional Development (CPD) requirements.
Ros Bennett is a freelance botanist with a wealth of experience at many FSC Centres. She has a practical and participative approach and is enthusiastic about all aspects of botany.
