Warrington Plant Group

Inspired by the example of North Wales Plant Group, I decided to start a group for field bryologists in my local area. Warrington Plant Group is for you if you are interested in wild plants and wild places. We are a small friendly group of people who go out and record mosses and liverworts in the winter. The aim is to get outdoors, have fun, learn about plant ID and generate records to contribute to scientific study at our monthly meetings. Whether you are an expert bryologist or just beginning, you will be very welcome. All meetings are in and around Cheshire and South Lancashire.  All meetings are offered jointly with North Western Naturalists Union bryophyte and lichen section.

Warrington Plant Group meetings programme winter 2022/23


All meetings are at weekends and start at 10am unless otherwise advised. Please contact me for further information and joining instructions.

Bring your lunch, your hand lens, your favourite ID book and wrap up warm. Walking boots recommended, or wellies if you prefer, as the sites can be muddy. If we are enjoying ourselves we will stay out til 4pm, but if the weather is unkind we may finish earlier. You are welcome to just come for the morning if you like.

Please suggest a site if you think it would be interesting for bryophytes.

There is a Facebook group for Warrington Plant Group, so feel free to join us there too.
