BSBI Irish Spring Conference 2021

The BSBI Irish Spring Conference will take place on the morning of Saturday 27th March. Starting at 10am through to 1.30pm, with a coffee/tea break in the middle. The conference will be a live webinar event. Details for booking will be advertised on this page nearer the time.

There are ten short talks planned, covering a wide variety of topics, including the discovery of Epipactis dunensis (Dune Helleborine) in Co. Dublin, a new orchid for Ireland (read about it in Irish Botanical News 2020), and on the conservation work for Saxifraga hirculus (Marsh Saxifrage) in Northern Ireland. BSBI Senior Country Officer Jim McIntosh will tell us about some of the new country projects that are being planned, and Jessica Hamilton (BSBI Kerry) will talk about the very successful 2021 New Year Plant Hunt. At the halftime break, it is planned to have a slideshow of ‘Nice Finds’ from around Ireland. If you would like to include a photo please send your pictures to BSBI Ireland Officer Paul Green.
