Event description
Illustrated talk with Dr Helena Crouch, Vice-County Recorder in North Somerset for the Botanical Society of Britain & Ireland

About this event

Somerset has a variety of coastal habitats and associated plant species, despite the coastline being entirely estuarine. Helena Crouch has been studying and recording coastal plants here for over 20 years, including a survey for Natural England of the rare plants along the coast between the Rivers Parrett and Avon.

In this talk, Helena will take us on an exploration of the different coastal habitats, including rocky shores, saltmarshes and sand dunes, looking at the common and rarer plants we might expect to find in each, and explaining their adaptations to their challenging environments.

A suggested minimum donation of £3 per person would be appreciated. All profits help Avon Wildlife Trust with their work locally. Please book one ticket per person.

Tickets may also be purchased on the door subject to availability: £3 for Avon Wildlife Trust members, £4 for non-members

The talk is held at the Baptist Church Hall in Keynsham.
