Places to go, things to see & do
Kent Wildlife Trust is happy to announce that it will be hosting a Field Identification Skills Certificate (FISC). FISC is becoming the standard for assessing botanical survey skills - there is currently no equivalent qualification. Plus you cannot fail! All candidates receive a certificate from the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland stating their botanical skill level. Useful advice is also given on how to progress to the next level. A FISC starts with a morning lab session, where candidates identify plant species from all over the British Isles. After lunch candidates visit a secret location and spend around an hour and a half recording every plant they see.
Scientific name: Muscardinus avellanarius
