This wildflower identification course, suitable for both beginners and more experienced botanists alike, provides a special opportunity to study the exceptionally rich downland flora of Box Hill. This will enable us to become familiar with the identification and natural history of a wide range of chalk plants, including less familiar groups such as grasses, roses, composites and crucifers. Help and advice will be given on identification aids and the use of keys and there will be plenty of opportunities for keen photographers. Also, we will be sure to see some of the rarer and more unusual species that are a speciality of the area. There will be an illustrated talk on the Saturday evening.

David Streeter is Emeritus Reader in Ecology at the University of Sussex and a past chairman of the Conservation Committee of the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland. He has had a long association with Juniper Hall and Box Hill.
