National Meadows Day: Sat 6 July

Join us in celebration of our magnificent meadows and have a go at using sweep nets to see the creatures found in the meadow up close.

Over the spring we've been letting the grass grow to create a wildlife habitat and increase biodiversity. By the end of June, our meadow will be bursting with wildflowers and mini-beasts. National Meadows Day is the perfect opportunity to come and explore and find out more about this pollinator-rich environment.
