The Shropshire Botanical Society was founded in 1976 as the Shropshire Flora Group. It is run entirely by volunteers to further the enjoyment, understanding and conservation of the flora of Shropshire. We organise field meetings, talks and events and issue two full colour newsletters twice a year. The newsletters contain identification guides, species accounts, records of new finds, write ups of field visits and all sorts of other botanical news.
Membership is open to anyone who is interested in botany, and costs £15 per year or £30 for 3 years. Your membership fee goes to support the activities of the Society such as hire of speakers, venues, printing and publishing, the website and quiz prizes. All meetings and field visits are free to anyone including guests as there is no charge for enjoying botany!
Update: The committee decided to waive the membership fees for the year 2020 as we had to cancel the indoor AGM/spring meeting and the summer field meetings. We will be starting subscriptions again from 1 Jan. 2021 in anticipation of welcoming people to field events again.
The first event of 2021 will be an online Zoom meetup: Winter Social, Sat.16th Jan. 2021, 2-4pm. If you are already a member you will automatically receive a Zoom invite. Guests are welcome, just email us first on: firstname.lastname@example.org
