A gentle walk to look for Blackheath’s clovers and allies, which only appear at the end of May, plus other flora and fauna.
Joe Beale ACIEEM is a London-based naturalist and an experienced tutor. He organises lichen surveys in London and worked on the lichen collection at the Natural History Museum while on the Identification Trainers for the Future programme.

He is passionate about the fascinating biodiversity of London’s green spaces and communicating this richness to others. Bring a hand lens if you have one.
Joe will be basing the walk on his guide to Blackheath’s clovers. Attendees can download a copy from the Blackheath Society here: The Blackheath Society : Leaflets & Guides
