The Saffron Walden Wild Flower Group is a long established informal group of enthusiasts who arrange a programme of different monthly field walks from April to September, taking no more than about an hour and a half each. We enjoy exchanging views on the identification of the many species we find (rarities in particular!) which not only adds to our knowledge but the lists we make provide a detailed record of continuity, or change, and these records are welcomed by the Saffron Walden Museum to add to its archive of our local environment.

The group hopes to be able to hold a programme of events in 2021 starting in May, dependent upon relaxation of the Covid Regulations. The situation is under constant review, and a programme of events will be posted here closer to the hoped-for start of the season.

We would very much welcome new members – anyone interested should please telephone Gertrud (see below).
