Buglife Meadow Session with Green Minds Plymouth

Thursday 13th July, 2023 - 11:30 am - 3:00 pm

The Meadow Cafe, Mayflower Drive, Plymouth, PL2 3DG

Central Park hosts some beautiful meadows. Join Buglife and the Green Minds project to learn more for a day of practical sessions and activities.

In the morning we will discuss valuable pollinator habitats including long/short grass, hedges, trees and tussocky grass. You will learn more about key meadow plants, management and why is important. After our packed lunch we will head out to a less diverse area and look at the difference in habitats including nesting sites.

Please register on Eventbrite so we know you are coming.
