Go­ing on a flower hunt

Country Life Every Week - - Town & Country -

PLANTLIFE, which works to pro­tect Bri­tain’s na­tive plants, has launched a hunt with an un­usual quarry: wild­flow­ers. A Yougov poll com­mis­sioned by the char­ity in May re­vealed that young peo­ple have very lim­ited knowl­edge of Bri­tain’s flora, but would like to find out more about it. They are be­ing en­cour­aged to go for a walk in the coun­try­side or an ur­ban park and re­port back on what they find. This will al­low them to learn more about flow­ers while help­ing Plantlife pre­serve them for the fu­ture. For more de­tails, visit www. plantlife.org.uk/ wild­flow­er­hunt
