Taking a stroll through a wild meadow at sunrise or sunset in summer is a magical moment. Sadly, around 97% of meadows have been lost since the 1930’s, but through the ‘Magnificent Meadows Cymru’ partnership project with Plantlife, we are reviving and restoring meadow landscapes across Wales, for everyone to enjoy.
Take a wander through one on National Meadows Day and throughout the summer and get a closer to nature.
