Warrington Plant Group

Inspired by the example of North Wales Plant Group, I decided to start a group for field botanists 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 wildflowers in the summer and 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 botanist or just beginning, you will be very welcome. All meetings are in and around Warrington, Cheshire.

To join us on future meetings, read on!

Warrington Plant Group meetings programme spring/summer 2020


All meetings are on Sundays 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.

CANCELLED March 22nd: bryophyte meeting, Pickmere

Joint meeting with North Western Naturalists’ Union Bryophyte Section.  An under-recorded square in the Cheshire countryside featuring pasture, hedgerows, trees and Pick Mere itself.  Meet at 10am at the small car park off Jacob’s Way, Pickmere (SJ687770).  If this is full, find street parking in the village – please park considerately.  We will explore the mere and habitats along the public footpath network surrounding the village.

Future dates pencilled in for flowering plant meetings, watch this space!
