Event description

Description

Introduction to Wildflowers: families and identification - Box Hill, Surrey

A one-day course covering the identification of grasses and flowers.




A one-day course aimed at improving attendees’ skill and confidence with identifying the main species of grasses and flowers found in semi-improved and unimproved grassland habitats. The morning will be spent introducing easy ways to recognise and learn these plants, with an opportunity in the afternoon to practise and improve on survey techniques, including walkover surveys and quadrat sampling.

There will also be a chance to look at the use of these plants as indicator species and as an aid to carrying out habitat classification and assessment.

Tutor: Leif Bersweden

Feedback from previous course;

Leif's relaxed style of training, with constant recaps, was very good

The location was fabulous, and the tutor was brilliant at making everything simple and easy to learn.

A lot of repetition which really helps! It is good to have some time in the afternoon for the identification in little groups, as we can test our newly gained knowledge.

Great pace and clear teching
