Wildflower Survey Training Sessions

Sustainable Swanage are offering 2 morning training sessions and we are fortunate to have the skills of Lindsay Carrington, an ecological consultant and trainer based in Purbeck, who will deliver the sessions. The training will include an introduction to common plant families and you will learn how to identify familiar meadow plants. Lindsay will cover how we can record them on a simple walk through survey and record their abundance on a simple scale. The sessions will be held at the Downs on the following dates: 

10th May 10-12pm

21st June 10-12pm

Attendance on both would be preferred as there will be different plants to spot. Once you have completed the training, all that we ask is that you are able to take part in at least one survey a month as we carry out monthly surveys during the summer at several sites across the town. This can be done in pairs or small groups. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the plants that you see on your walks and to also contribute to safeguarding and enhancing the wildlife that we enjoy
