Wild Flower Walks 2019

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.
