Plant Identification 1: Botany for Beginners 2017

This part-time course will help you become more familiar with around 350 local wild plants. Each module focuses on a different group of plants; we show you how to identify them, using classroom-based tuition sessions, follow-up fieldtrips to local sites, and resources including websites. We aim to increase your appreciation and understanding of the plant diversity of Leicestershire & Rutland.

You can take modules singly or in any number & combination; or you can register for all seven. Fees are £50 per module, but a discounted rate of £45 is offered to members of BSBI, LRWT or Friends of the Botanic Garden, whose names appear on current membership lists.
