Respected botanist Nan Sykes leaves us
Posted on 12th February 2020
We are saddened by the death of local botanist Nan Sykes, who died earlier this month at the age of 96.
The wonderful Nan Sykes, who was a friend to so many in NYMA and beyond, died in early February at the age of 96. She spent most of her working life botanising in north-east Yorkshire, and has left a wonderful legacy in the form of books, a photographic archive and species records. We look forward to working with others to take her legacy forward into the future by making much of her work publicly available.
