Training Events

Good training underpins good biological records. CBDC delivers Recording for Beginners training and encourages recorders to attend species identification training in the County.

What’s That Flower?

Join Stuart Colgate, an experienced botanist and CBDC’s recording officer, to learn how to identify British wildflowers.

The morning session will be indoors and will focus on plant structure and the characteristics to study when identifying flowers. We will be using fresh specimens and items from the Tullie House Museum Collections. The afternoon session will be outdoors (weather permitting) where we explore the local area and identify the plants that we see.
