Elan Links : Lower Plant ID and Survey Training:
Tue 11 Feb / 10:00 - 4pm

The fourth in a series of 5 sessions learning how to identify mosses, liverworts, ferns and lichens.
The day will be spent partly indoors and partly outside. Meet at the Elan Links Office in Elan Village. Not the Visitor Centre.
Identification training will lead into a series of surveys of the lower plants in the Elan Valley. These are hugely important in the valley as they make up a large proportion of the vegetation present.
