Seashore Identification Day Monday 7th October 9.30am to 3.00pm

No previous knowledge required. Please bring outdoor clothes, wellington boots and a packed lunch. Hot drinks will be available for purchase.

Attendees will meet at 9.30am at the Museum for a short briefing before walking down to the shore. The morning will be spent on the shore returning for lunch at the Museum. The afternoon will be spent indoors looking more closely at identification features of seaweeds and other materials collected during the morning. Attendees will also be shown how to press seaweeds.
