National Meadows Day 2017
National Meadows Day is a growing event which celebrates wildflower grasslands, providing an opportunity for you to showcase the amazing wildflowers and species you have on your sites and in your communities. Feedback from last year showed that many people attending events were surprised by the diversity of the flora and sheer number of insects and reptiles found in the meadows they visited. This really reinforced the importance of meadow preservation, and of the role of the National Meadows Day events in educating the public about this important habitat that is fast disappearing.
The date for 2017 is Saturday 1st July
We are keen to grow this event nationally so that National Meadows Day becomes an annual event taking place on the first Saturday of July every year (Sunday is fine too). Our vision is for people to celebrate National Meadows Day in their own city, village, parish, wildlife reserve, allotment or farm all over the UK.
All you need to do is plan a fun activity/event for that day and brand it as “National Meadows Day” - please click here for more information or contact Fiona Perez at Plantlife at firstname.lastname@example.org or 01722 342730.
