New Year plant hunts

Cambridge Natural History Society begins the New Year with the traditional plant hunting walk in the CNHS field studies area on January 1.  This year the target area returns to West Cambridge for the third time in a ten year cycle that began in 2004.

As with the first walk, we will begin at 11am where the Coton Footpath joins Adams Road.  Bring a packed lunch.  Whilst the focus is on plants we will also record all other wildlife that we encounter. 

All welcome – no need to book. If the weather is poor the visit may be postponed until January 2nd.

The Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland’s thirteenth New Year Plant Hunt will run from 30th December 2023 to 2nd January 2024. The idea is to see how many plants can be found in flower in three hours. Full details, including identification guides for the top 20 species likely to be found, are at .
