Would you like to learn to identify wildflowers? Friends of The Hook is running a practical fieldwork course this spring and summer.
On eight Thursday evenings from 6-8pm, Mags Crittenden an experienced botanist and teacher, will lead sessions on The Hook, finding and identifying plants through their flowers.
She will use common names, but will also introduce scientific names and explain about plant families.
There is no charge for the course but you will need to buy the recommended wildflower book and a hand lens (£16 each)
There are 10 places for people aged 16+
The sessions will run once a month from April to September. In June and August, when there are most flowers out, there will be a second evening. Thursday evenings 6-8pm April 6, May 11, June 8 & 15, July 13, August 3, 17, Sept 7
