Intro to Coastal Plants.png

This session is designed for anyone who wants to learn about the plants that they might come across on a visit to the coast.  It’s being delivered by Liza Cole who is not an expert botanist but during her 25 years working as a Ranger at coastal reserves, including Lundy (Devon), Portland (Dorset) and St Abbs (Berwickshire) she has picked up enough knowledge to introduce you to the common plants to be found in various coastal habitats.

 

The session will be delivered via Zoom and will cover the following:

  • Factors affecting coastal plants

  • Maritime grasslands

  • Maritime heaths

  • Machair

  • Cliffs

  • Rocky shores

  • Shingle beaches

  • Sandy beaches

  • Sand dunes

  • Saltmarshes

 

I will be running this session on Tuesday 22nd March 2022

 

Cost: £7.50
