The 2019 State of Nature Report suggests that nearly half of all species in the UK have decreased in the last ten years. If wildlife is to thrive again, we need to create and restore a network of biodiverse habitats across the country, including restoring and creating wildflower meadows.

Wildflower meadows are among the most important wildlife habitats, as they support disproportionately high numbers of plant and animal species. Yet 97% of Britain’s wildflower meadows have been lost since the 1930s.

If you’d like to know more about the history of wildflower meadows, their ecological importance and how we can help nature thrive again, then join us on the evening of February 3rd to find out more.

The online talk will be followed by a Question & Answer session.

This talk is free, but if you can afford a donation, between £2.50 and £10, this will go towards supporting the work of Moor Meadows. Any funds go entirely towards providing events with top speakers and helping with the running costs of our website and forum.
