The Oxfordshire Flora Group 2017 Spring Talks programme (downloadable pdf) has been published.

This very knowledgeable and busy group (formerly the Rare Plants Group) is part of the The Ashmolean Natural History Society of Oxfordshire (ANHSO), the oldest Natural History Society in England. It was established as the Ashmolean Society in 1828 and was merged with the Oxfordshire Natural History Society by George Claridge Druce in 1901.

This excellent series of lunchtime talks runs from 26th January to the 9th March and includes presentations on orchids and other flowers in the Chilterns (Andrew Ingram), gardens and climate change (Michael Keith-Lucas), Oxfordshire's Local Wildlife Sites (TVERC's own Julie Kerans) and it's threatened plants (John Killick). A great way to celebrate spring and look forward to the next flowering plant main botanising season.

All talks in this series are held on Thursday lunchtimes in the Schlich Theatre, Plant Sciences Department of Oxford University, South Parks Road, Oxford, OX 1 3RB and begin at 1.10pm.

All are welcome to attend. Donations of £3 towards costs would be appreciated by the group.
