Vege Grass ID, Sat. 23rd April

We are kicking off the first field meeting of 2022 with a training meeting on vegetative grass identification.

Saturday 23rd April. Loam Hole Dingle and Ropewalk Meadow, Coalbrookdale (SJ 6674 0476). 

Meeting in the car park of The Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron, Coach Rd, Coalbrookdale, Telford TF8 7DQ at 10:30am. Parking is £5 for the day although there is limited free parking locally.

Focus will be on Hilary Wallace’s FSC AIDGAP VegetativeGrass Identification handbook. We’ll look at a range of grass species and use vegetative characters to identify them. There will be lots of stops along the way, although there is a strenuous climb up a set of steps before lunch in a wonderful series of meadows managed by the Severn Gorge Countryside Trust.
