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.

Wood anemones and early dog violets out by the river Wear in Durham now - getting outside and looking for signs of spring at this surreal time seems like the best #NaturalHealthService @BSBIbotany https://t.co/l2KoNthcz8 CumbriaBDC photo

3. This decision was not taken lightly & was done in conjunction with partners & stakeholders. With the health of our community uppermost in our minds we feel closing is the safest option. We look forward to reopening with our programme of exhibitions & events as soon as possible
