Budding volunteers required for wildflower surveys

Have you seen the wildflower areas popping up across the city? Some of these areas have been sown with wildflower seeds, others are areas of grassland that we are leaving uncut so that we can see what flowers and grasses appear. The meadows project aims to increase the biodiversity of the grassed areas in the city. Allowing grassy areas to grow longer is beneficial for a range of wildlife including pollinators, birds and small mammals.

If you are interested in getting involved, keen to utilise, develop or improve on your plant identification skills, and are available for the dates above, please email your interest to us. We will send you a short questionnaire to complete to help us identify possible volunteers for sites. We will then be in contact with further information about the training.
