The Wild Flower Diary
The central and distinctive activity of the Society
is based on the Wild Flower Diary in which members
record the plants they find each year. The Diary contains a printed list
of 1,000 species and a space for further entries.
Members are allocated to Branches on a roughly
geographical basis. Each Branch has a Secretary to whom Diaries are sent
for comment at the end of the year and who will answer questions about
Keeping a Diary is not a condition of membership,
but many members find it an enjoyable and instructive discipline.
Other activities include:
Field Meetings which are held on most weekends
in the summer, and which are open to all members, and various competitions,
including photographic competitions and special competitions for juniors.
The Annual General Meeting is held in November,
followed by a tea party at which members can meet their Branch Secretaries
and each other.
The Wild Flower Magazine is published three times a year
and contains Branch reports, reports of field meetings, articles
on botanical subjects, news of members, book reviews, etc.
