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. Please follow the link for B&B contact details /media/872062/2016-bb-leaflet.pdf.





Are you a botanist who still shies away from the Dandelion look-alikes? Have you tried and failed to sort out the willows or the docks for instance? Do you find yourself saying "I don't do sedges . . . or ferns . . . or goosefoots?" This course does not expect to turn you into an expert in any of these plants groups, but to demystify where possible and to get you started. By the end of the course you should be inspired with confidenced and enthusiasm to tackle 'new' and attractive plants and so discover yet more of our amazingly beautiful, intriguing and surprisingly diverse flora.

Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service (SBIS) and Suffolk Naturalists Society (SNS) have kindly offered a bursary to support individuals who wish to attend this course to help provide people with the skills and experience to identify and record Suffolk wildlife. Further info can be found HERE.

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