New Year Plant Hunt 2 (Botany Section)

Tue. 2 January 2024 at 10:30 am

New Year Plant Hunt at Lympstone.

The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland hold a New Year Plant Hunt every year in the last few days of December and the first few of January. The objective is to record species of plant in flower over a period of not more than three hours. The data is used to help assess the effects of climate change on our flora, and there’s also a small element of competition as groups see just how many flowering plants they can find. 

Meet in Lympstone car park SX992841. Train station nearby and also accessible by the 57 bus from Exeter but then 700 metre walk to the car park.

Please contact the leader if you would like to attend as the date may change according to the weather – if bad the event may be held on Wednesday 3rd January.

Bob Kirby is going to lead another New Year Plant Hunt between 30th December and 2nd January in North Devon. The location is to be decided, but most likely Great Torrington, although Instow and Bideford are alternative possibilities. Start time is expected to be 12:30. If you are interested, contact the leader to be kept up to date with developments at vc4.botany@gmail.com
