Lying at the tip of the Romney Marsh peninsula, Dungeness is one of the largest shingle beach landscapes in the world. This National Nature Reserve has a unique and fragile community of plants, insects and other wildlife, many of which are uncommon and vulnerable. (A key location for migratory birds, it also includes a bird observatory and an RSPB reserve and visitor centre.)

Heather Silk is a botanist and naturalist who has been active in conservation in Kent for many years. She is co-author of Wild Flowers of Dungeness – A Photographic Guide, the definitive book about the area’s flora, and will talk about some of the 600 plant species found in this wild and special place. We hope Heather will have copies of her guide for sale.

As usual at our lecture meetings there will also be:
Plant display – Plant sale – Seed exchange – Book sale – Raffle – Teas
