John Faulkner, BSBI Vice County Recorder for County Armagh, will spend the day helping us to identify Ferns using keys. We will be taking a walk around the site to find species to identify. Samples will also be examined under microscopes to allow us to get familiar with identification features. This event supports Northern Ireland Environment Week.
