Event Description

Come and join in with a wildflower meadow event. This practical volunteer task day is being organised with the Tamar Community Trust and the bat project.

You will learn to use a scythe to help manage this newly established wildflower meadow. The location is by a beautiful stretch of the Tamar Trails at Morwell Barton. Wild flower grassland surrounded by woods are important hunting grounds for greater horseshoe bats, and this site right next to the Tamar and very close to an important greater horseshoe bat maternity roost is no exception. Come along to hear more about why wild flower meadows matter.
