National Meadows Day

National Meadows Day is an annual event taking place on or around the first Saturday of July.  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.

In 2017, more than 125 events took place on or around National Meadows Day, celebrating wildflower grasslands with guided walks, wildlife hunts, arts & crafts, training workshops and more. Click here to see some great photos and other results from these events on Plantlife's blog.

Would you like to put on a event?

National Meadows Day is an opportunity for you to showcase the amazing wildflowers and species you have on your sites and in your communities. For further details or to get your event onto our 'What's On' calendar, please email us at

Many people attending events are visiting meadows for the first time and they are truly surprised by the diversity of the flora, insects and reptiles found in the meadows they visited. National Meadows Day events are really helping to raise awareness about the importance of meadow preservation and playing a vital role in educating the public about this fast-disappearing habitat.
