The BSBI New Year Plant Hunt runs for four days each year and aims to track how our wild and naturalised plans are reacting to changing weather conditions.
Join NHSN Senior Naturalist, James Common, for a morning of urban wildflowers as together, we see how many species we can find in bloom on the streets of Heaton. Wild species, garden escapes, urban invaders, we'll look for them all.
Please wear decent walking boots. Do feel free to bring a hand lens or handy field guide. Together, we'll explore urban areas of Heaton before heading towards Warwick Street and eventually, the outskirts of the Ouseburn Valley.
If you take any photos while attending the event, please do share them with NHSN by emailing email@example.com.
