THE UNIVERSITY OF THE THIRD AGE
Leisurely paced walks of 2-6 miles allow time to identify some of the common and not so common wild flowers in the countryside. We visit locations within a 35-mile radius of York where there is a good assemblage of wild flowers.
Group members make their own way to the venues, but it is possible car sharing can be arranged after the first walk.
A notebook, wild flower identification book(s) and a hand lens can be useful. Members take it in turns to record the plants seen during the walk enabling a list to be compiled for each walk.
Walks are all day usually finishing by mid-afternoon. A picnic lunch and drinks are required. It is recommended a waterproof jacket and insect repellent are carried. Walking boots are advisable because some of the paths can be uneven, slippery or steep.
Walks are on Mondays at 2-4-week intervals meeting at 10.30hrs, usually starting in April and finishing in late August/September.
It is anticipated there will be 6-7 walks. The dates and locations of the walks will be sent to group members in February 2019.
