Field Meetings in 2015

Rutland Water Meeting 2014
The Meetings Calendar has now been updated to show our programme of field meetings in 2015. You can view the calendar on the VC55 webpage. Or, click on the link in the list underneath the photo at the top to download a copy. The site, date and contact for each meeting is given, but not all have a parking location indicated yet - these will be given in the mailing about the meeting, which we will send out nearer the date of the meeting. We thought it was important that you had the dates for your diary as soon as possible.
It is likely that there will be extra meetings throughout the year which will be added and Doodled to select a date, just as in previous years.

Something for later
As you can see from the programme, the emphasis this year is on recording under-recorded areas for the Atlas 2020 project. Most of the meetings are concerned with recording the monads that the BSBI have asked us to record, but there are some longer whole-day meetings and a joint meeting with the Warwickshire recorders, John and Monika Walton, to record a monad straddling the two county boundaries (Reminder: a monad is a 1km x 1km square).

The meetings are open to all: less experienced members and botanical beginners are welcome to attend all the meetings.

Looking forward to some good weather and to seeing you all again.

Geoffrey, Russell, Louise and Richard
