The BSBI’s New Year Plant hunt takes place from 1st-4th January 2017. Further details can be found here
Locally, we are planning to go out as a group on Wednesday 4th January, meeting at 2pm at the top of Appley Steps near Rylstone Gardens in Shanklin (grid reference SZ 585808). Parking is available in nearby streets. We will take a circular route including part of the Esplanade, the cliff footpath and the cliff top to see how many native or naturalised plants we can find in flower.
Please note the walk will include steep ascents and descents; strong footwear recommended.
