Glen Parva Bioblitz Saturday 27 June

Botanists

Our next meeting will be at the Glen Parva Bioblitz, which is taking place from Friday 26 to Saturday 27 June (3:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.). The organisers are hoping to record at least 300 species in the Glen Parva and Glen Hills Local Nature Reserves, an area of woodland, grassland, ponds and hedges, bordering the Grand Union Canal.

If you'd like to help record the plants here, then meet at the Green Flag by the gazebo on the recreation ground at the western end of Dorothy Avenue (SP 56692 99322) at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday 27, and we'll spend a couple of hours in the field. If it's wet, then we'll meet in the meeting room accessed directly from the car park. There are very few records of vascular plants in this area, so the records will be used for the Atlas 2020 project as well (monad SP5699).

This event is suitable for beginners and experienced botanists, as there are some moderately species-rich grasslands, which qualify as Local Wildlife Sites, and some interesting aquatic vegetation to see. For information about the event and site maps see the Bioblitz home page and links from it. Parking is available at in  the car park at the end of Dorothy Avenue, or on street near the site.
