N: Isle of Wight
May 18 - May 19
We had to cancel this meeting last year after Tim Pyner’s untimely death, but following his discovery of Tmesipteris in Ventnor Botanic Garden, we still felt a trip to the island to explore ferns would be worthwhile. BPS last had a trip there in 2006. This time, a weekend would again be spent under the direction of Colin Pope, the local vice-county recorder, with days exploring ferns in Ventnor Botanic Garden and sites around the Ventnor and Shanklin areas.
The meeting will be based at Channel View Hotel, Shanklin, IOW (01983 862309; firstname.lastname@example.org;). We will meet initially for a meal and briefing at c. 7.30p.m. on Friday May 17th, 2019.
Leader: Colin Pope.
