Field Meeting Programme:
The weekend field trips are yet to be finalised but may include the grounds of Preston Montford, the Old River Bed at Shrewsbury, the Montgomery Canal to look at the water and emergent plants or Llanymynech Quarry.
On Monday, we will visit Ironbridge Gorge, Telford. There will be a walk led by Martin Godfrey, to look at the ferns of Benthall Edge Wood, which has good paths although these are steep in places. For those who prefer more level terrain, there will be the option of a flatter walk in the woods.
After the AGM on Saturday afternoon, there will be a talk by Jonathan Drori, entitled, ‘Around the World in 80 Plants’. Jonathan (who is a member of the WFS) takes a trip across the globe, bringing to life the science of plants by revealing how their worlds are inextricably entwined with our own history, culture and folklore. For more information about Jonathan, visit his website, http://www.jondrori.co.uk/
Full details will be circulated with the summer issue of magazine.
