About us


Working in partnership is a very effective way of protecting rare meadows (Photo credit: Mike Dodd).

 

The Floodplain Meadows Partnership is an innovative project focussing on research, management, promotion and restoration of these special meadows in England and Wales.

We will undertake long term monitoring to improve knowledge about plant community responses to environmental change. We will disseminate this information to all those involved in the conservation, management and restoration of floodplain meadows, and we will be running short courses, workshops and developing publications and literature that summarize the latest knowledge.

See Professor Gowing in a short video about this project.

We would like to find out more about projects around the country that are restoring meadows and share experiences. We would like to hear from you about your meadow experiences, your memories, your favourite sites and names that you remember and still use for flowers that you find in a meadow.

We hope to develop a wide network of interested organisations and individuals, so if you would like to be on the contact list, find out about workshops and courses, keep abreast of the latest research regarding floodplain meadows ecology and receive newsletters, then please get in touch.
