The national society gave a grant of £250 to the Worcestershire conservation charity in order to train some of their volunteers in wildflower identification. The training will allow the volunteers to take a more active role in surveying and monitoring species on the Trust’s nature reserves.
David Molloy, conservation officer, commented “This training has allowed some of our keenest volunteers to spend quality time with a trainer to really get to grips with identifying wildflowers.
“It’s really important that we know what plants are growing on what nature reserves so that we know how best to manage them. The plants support so many other species so it’s vital that we get this right."
