Wildflowers

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 meetings, just contact one of the coordinators (details below) for more information. For 2021 we will review our plans regularly to take account of Covid-19 regulations and advice. Our programme from April to October will include;

Thursday walks,

o   1st Thursday each month 2.30 – 4.00pm

o   3rd Thursday each month 9.30 – 11.30am

 

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. 

Zoom meetings,

Following our successful zoom meetings over the winter of 2020/21 we will continue to meet monthly on zoom on the third Thursday afternoon to share our latest sightings and chat about all things related to wildflowers.

 

One-off outings,

These walks to view a particular plant or area may be more physically challenging. The date and time will be set by the leader.

 

Regular reports

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.
