Floodplain Meadows Partnership Conference "Floodplain meadows for the future" May 2017


The conference was a huge success! Here is a list of presentations which have been made available as pdf files by kind permission of the authors:



Events 2016

UK Grasslands Forum 2016

This year, we helped to host the UK Grasslands Forum, along with FAI Farms and Dr Alison McDonald. The Grasslands Forum meets roughly annually with a 2 day workshop every 18 months or so and a day meeting in between times. It is a forum of individuals interested in UK Grasslands and largely took over where the Lowland grasslands Habitat Action Plan finished. The 2016 meeting was held at Wytham, the Oxford University Field Station and focussed on grassland restoration. Delegates were taken around Pixey and Yarnton Meads, both SSSI’s and SACs designated for their lowland meadow plant communities. These meadows are managed by FAI Farms. Other visits were held to several floodplain meadow restoration fields, also being undertaken by FAI Farms.

There were a selection of talks each day, with a focus on grassland restoration, and these are available to view below.

If you would like to find out more about the UK Grassland Forum, or join the mailing list, please let us know.
