Event description
Our Autumn Botany Evening Classes cover the Botanical identification of wild and naturalised British plants.

About this Event

We are working in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University to trial our Botany evening classes at their CCCU campus in North Holmes Road.

During these evening classes, you learn how to confidently identify and record plants and seek confirmation when necessary. You will identify plants in families and genera by the use of keys, specimens and descriptions.

Each week concentrates on the identification of a genus of plants in Kent with specimens, PowerPoint presentations and a quiz on the previous week’s plants. Plants will be identified by comparison of specimens to find species, and the use of keys to assign names. Cribs to the identification of species in Kent will be produced.

It would be useful if you could bring your own wildflower books and hand lenses, but some are available for use on the day. This venue is suitable for wheelchair users - if you have any specific accessibility issues, please contact us in advance.

The classes are led by Alex Lockton, who has twenty years’ experience working as a lecturer in ecology at Birmingham University and Manchester Metropolitan University, as coordinator of the Botanical Society of the British Isles, and as an ecological consultant. He is county recorder for Shropshire and author of The Flora and Vegetation of Shropshire (2015).

Please note that this is a trial and the course will be cancelled if it is not viable. Participants will then be offered a full refund or a transfer to the Maidstone evening classes, if there are places still available.

For further information, please visit the Study Days page of the Kent Wildlife Trust website.
