Bradford Botany Group



Ramsons (Allium ursinum)

 Who are we?

We are a leading Wild Flower Group in the North of England with an interest stretching from coast to coast.

The group was formed in 1983 and an indication of its sustained popularity is seen in a healthy membership and an expansion in the range of its organised activities.

The aims of the Group from the very start have been to bring together people interested in botany, wild plants and the nature conservation ethic and to further this enjoyment and knowledge by means of summer field meetings and monthly winter indoor meetings held at Shipley library.

What can we offer you?

A full programme of summer field meetings, visiting a wide variety of locations and habitats across the North of England, containing both common and representative plants as well as national rarities.

Monthly indoor meetings held throughout the winter at Shipley library, providing a varied and stimulating programme of talks, lectures, slide shows and workshop demonstrations.

The chance to go on an annual, residential, field study visit, over a long weekend, to study the representative flora, as well as the rarities, of another region of Britain.

The opportunity to share, to learn from others, and in doing so, to extend your knowledge of the British flora.
