Wildflower Identification with Plantlife
Plantlife is a charity organisation who speak up for the UK's wild flowers, plants and fungi. Wildflowers and plants play an important role within our environment and they are increasingly struggling due to habitat loss and strong non natives who quickly push out some native species.
"Plantlife Scotland has created a series of free handy cards, highlighting 14 familiar habitats and some of the typical plants that can be found in them. Discover and explore different places and see what’s growing there. It’s great as a family activity or with a small group of friends, or just out for a wander by yourself."
