New Year Plant Hunts. The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland holds 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. The data is used to help assess the effects of climate change on our flora, and there is also a small element of competition as groups see just how many flowering plants they can find. We hold a number of these hunts over the New Year Period


Botany Section meetings are from 11.00 a.m. to approximately 4.00 p.m., unless otherwise stated. Bring packed lunch, appropriate footwear and clothing, as well as sufficient water, sun-block, insect repellent or other essentials required for a day outdoors. Please contact the leader if you wish to attend – meeting details can sometimes change at short notice and if the weather forecast looks poor the meeting may have to be cancelled. You should also check with the leader if you wish to bring your dog.

Non members are welcome.
