An outing to High Elms Country Park, Farnborough, Kent. Over 250 acres of countryside to wander, whilst our herbarium colleague, John Hewitt, gives further insight into the banker and biologist, John Lubbock described by Punch in 1882:
How doth the Banking Busy Bee,
Improve his shining Hours?
By studying on Bank Holidays,
Strange insects and Wild Flowers!
and his fascinating correspondence with Darwin on their views of natural history and human development.
Meet at the Green Roof Café Visitor Centre. Bring a packed lunch. Booking essential.
