A fascinating talk by The Clyde Members Centre of the Scottish Wildlife Trust continues the winter indoor programme of events.

The illustrated talk entitled ‘Our Native Insect-trapping Plants’ will take place on Thursday, March 6 at 7.30pm in Milngavie Lesser Town Hall.

Plant expert Roy Sexton will examine this interesting subject, with a question and answer session after talking about the many different families of plants that grow in a wide variety of terrains throughout Scotland.

These include Sundew, Butterwort and Lady’s Slipper Orchid which use insects as food or for pollination purposes.

At the end of the session people will have a better idea of how to identify these plants.

SWT members and non-members are asked to pay a £2 donation to include refreshments.
