Wessex Bryology Group information

Contact details

We cover Dorset, Wiltshire, Somerset and Hampshire and always try to arrange our program to to include a good range of habitats and sites.

A key aim of the group is to encourage those who are new to the subject to become more experienced and confident at identifying bryophytes. Beginners are most welcome at all our meetings. There is no formal membership or constitution and each person goes out at his/her own risk.

The only equipment needed is a hand lens (x10 or x20) and some paper packets for collecting specimens. Many of the sites we visit include wet and muddy areas so boots are advisable. We will usually eat a packed lunch on site.

All meetings start at 10.30am and finish between 3pm and 4pm.

Since 2020 we have asked all participants in our field meetings to book a place. This allows us to let everyone know if a meeting has to be postponed, cancelled or changed at short notice and also enables us to implement any restrictions and guidance to safeguard the health of leaders and attendees.

If you would like to come to one of our field meetings you must book a place in advance with the respective group leader. Places will be allocated on a first-come, first served basis and can only be booked one meeting ahead at a time.
