We are a group of like-minded people who all enjoy having a go at botany and have skills ranging from complete beginner to expert. We meet up on Saturdays and Sundays for botany based walks.

Our aim is to share our skills and enjoy looking at plants together. We welcome everybody and we don’t charge a membership fee! We cultivate a supportive and encouraging atmosphere, sharing lifts, lenses and field guides.

The group’s aim is to enjoy the wide variety of plants in the North of Ceredigion, sharing and expanding our knowledge of the local flora. In this we have been generously assisted by the help and expertise of our County Plant Recorders past and present – Arthur Chater and Steve Chambers. We have also had tremendous support from Aberystwyth University staff, lecturers, professional and amateur botanists of all abilities and a strong connection with local students.

We create a yearly programme of botanical walks which the public are welcome to attend.

Children are welcome, except on the occasional walk which would be unsuitable for young ones for safety reasons, (this will be stated on the programme). They must remain under the care and attention of their responsible adult at all times during our walks.

Well-behaved dogs on leads are allowed at the discretion of the walk leader, except, as above, when the walk is unsuitable for them, and this will also be noted on the programme.
