The area around Matlock has rich and varied flora. Join this group if you would like to discover more about our local wildflowers. You don’t need to be an expert in finding and identifying wildflowers to join as members learn together sharing their knowledge and expertise along the way. You will be welcome to join any of our walks, just contact one of the coordinators (details below) for more information. For 2023 we will have one regular walk each month on the 2nd Wednesday, February to October inclusive at 10am. These walks are short and accessible for people whose mobility may be a little restricted. From time to time we may circulate information about additional one-off outings to areas with more difficult access.
4th Wednesday, February – October (inclusive) 10:00 – 12:00
These walks are typically no more than 1.5 miles, on smooth trails or good paths with no stiles and usually not steep – we will warn you in advance if there are any steep sections. We often visit Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Reserves.
These walks to view a particular plant or area may be more physically challenging to access than our regular walks. The date and time will be set by the leader. If any member wants to lead one of these walks, please email the coordinators who can circulate members with the information.
The reports are circulated to group members via Beacon. They are generated from the database where photos and notes of what we see are shared.
To find out more or see the provisional list of venues for 2024 get in touch with one of our group coordinators. We can all be contacted by email,
