Thank you for your interest in our course. The accommodation at the centre is full, however we work closely with the local B&Bs to offer participants the chance to attend as a non-resident and stay within the local area. If you would like to attend as a non-resident provisionally book your place on the course and then confirm your accommodation.

This late season has been chosen because some of the salt marsh plants, in particular, are easiest to identify when they are in fruit. The course is designed to help you identify the characteristic species. We shall spend time considering the key identification features of the major families and the species that we shall find. This will require close examination of the flowers which provide the major big clues to the identity of any plant, but other features are also very useful to determine precise identification. Beginners should acquire a basic knowledge of how to identify a good range of our native coastal plants and the confidence to pursue the subject further.

Ros Bennett is a freelance botanist and former member of FSC staff with extensive experience of more difficult groups of plants.
