BSBI & Bloke off the Telly in North Wales this weekend...

Treborth Botanic Garden
Welsh Officer Paul Green is going to be running a BSBI display with Plant ID demos at Wild Science Day this Sunday, 17th March. The event is taking place at Treborth Botanic Garden and there is more info here and also on their Blog. If you are in North Wales on Sunday, this looks like a really enjoyable day, especially for families. And it's free!

The event is being opened by one of the co-authors of BSBI's New Atlas of the British & Irish Flora - Trevor Dines of Plantlife Cymru, aka the man off the telly who shoots at plants on Salisbury Plain. The Organising Team at Treborth told me they are delighted to welcome Trevor, fresh from co-presenting Channel 4's 'Wild Things', and they encourage you to "come and hear about Trevor's work with BSBI and how some of the rarest plants in the UK are found in North Wales".

The final episodes of Wild Things are available for another week or so here on catch-up, in case you missed out first time around or just have to watch the best bits again!
