At the end of June, the Brindle & Green Ecology team undertook an internal botany training afternoon, which usually ends with a trip to a local species rich meadow, however the extreme heat on the day resulted in a trip to a local pub!
The session was one of our regular internal CPD sessions provided throughout the year and is a refresher for the senior staff and an introduction for graduates to flowering plant families.
We focused on the top 10 flowering plant families and botanical terms to help learn key identifiable features to speed up identification and keying out to species level within the field. There was a selection of samples provided to allow a practical element where everyone helped each other to use the wildflower keys and a hand lens to identify specimens. These sessions are great for all levels as it encourages discussion and questions from the team in a relaxed environment.
Tom Hough, Brindle & Green’s Head of Archaeology & Heritage, explores the captivating history of the village where our offices have been based for the last 9 years whilst our Graphic Designer, Nadine Tunnicliffe takes her own perspective on the landscape around us with a series of beautiful photographs taken one early autumn morning.
With the increasing demand on our contracting division, we are excited to announce the arrival of three new members of the contracting team!
