Janet Simkin leads this 20 session course to explore the rich variety of local habitats and their plants, from the coast to the North Pennines.

We will concentrate on flowering plants, but ferns, lichens and bryophytes will get a look in as well and we will discuss aspects of plant biology, identification and ecology.

There will be several all-day field trips to sites in Northumberland and Durham.

Indoor classes take place at the Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle NE2 4PT. Outdoor classes involve walking in the wider countryside (for further details click here).
