A great way to get involved in botany. Most field meetings are open to anyone, although members have priority. If you want to book on a meeting, contact the leader well in advance because they will fill up. Please do not just turn up on the day.

Botanising in the Peloponnese
Escape the winter blues and head off to southern Greece in the Spring to experience the wealth of wildflowers in archaeological sites (in April) and gentle walks in habitats from seashore to mountain snow. The weather is usually warm and comfortable, the walks unhurried with lunchtime picnics and good Greek fare in the evenings. For more details of costings, timing of trips and possible plants to be found please look at our website at www.greekbotanytours.co.uk.
