Field Meetings for 2000

Shropshire Botanical Society Newsletter - Spring 2000 - page 7


How to book: Please always phone on the day before a field meeting if you wish to attend, in case it has to be cancelled. The training meeting will be cancelled (as last year!) if not enough people book a place, so please don't complain if you just turn up without booking and no-one is there… Unless it states otherwise, always bring a packed lunch and sensible clothing. To book, please phone the leader.
