Box Hill, loved by so many. From Jane Austen’s characters picnicking on the slopes to cyclists puffing their way up the zigzag road. Have you ever wondered what the wild flowers are you are seeing whilst spending the day there? Here is your opportunity to find out with an introduction to the chalkland flora of Box Hill. Explore with fellow enthusiasts, see beautiful plants and learn how to identify them. Over the weekend we will explore Box Hill from top to bottom looking for the special plants of this area. We will have some indoor sessions too looking at how to identify plants using plant keys. There will also be opportunities to share tips on recognizing and remembering plant species. The weekend will be suitable for beginners or those wishing to learn more about the plants of this area of Surrey.

She is also involved in recording for the New London Flora and is Chair of the Bushy Park Wildlife Group.
