Spring Flowers Project-Detectives Needed!
Not only have the clocks moved forward but the air is stirring with awakening anticipation. New growth, buds bursting forward, tiny shoots peeping upwards towards the warming sunshine. Nature is coming alive and it is the perfect time to look around for some of the amazing wild spring flowers that are emerging.
We started a recording of our native wild flowers last year and would love if you have any photos of the Spring flowers that are appearing now. You can send them by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or on any of our social media channels.
Attached are Spring Flower Spotter Sheets that may help in identifying the species you find. Please download and print to help with identification.
These spotter sheets are curtsey of the National Biodiversity Data Centre and the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) This Spring Flower Project encourages everyone to send their records so that future plant conservation in Ireland can be sustained.
Locally we also have a very active WhatsApp if you wish to join; just text 087-6652426
We look forward to your photos!
