BOTANY

The Botany Group holds its meetings every other Tuesday from end of April to mid August usually for the whole day. The meetings vary from those sites very close to Grassington eg Kilnsey park, the banks of the Wharfe, to further afield eg the west coast for dune systems, reserves in Cumbria and our National Natures Reserves as around Ingleborough. In this way we can become familiar with plants that are not on our doorstep and sites away from limestone grassland.

Our aim is to be able to identify the most common plants, and gradually learn the less common ones as those from the board walk at Malham or the Orchids at Kilnsey Park. We also take an interest in the different Grasses, Sedges and Rushes. Often birds and butterflies and other wildlife catch our attention.
At any meeting we record all the plants we see – if we can! – providing a useful record for further visits to the same site.
We are a friendly group and welcome complete beginners and those with more experience.
