Hardwick Green Floodplain Meadow

Thursday March 19th 2020, 7:30 at Wulstans Hall, Pershore.

An illustrated talk by Chris Greensmith. Underground, overground.... discovering, exploring and investigating Hardwick Green floodplain meadow. Hardwick Green Meadows are a new Trust reserve in the SW of Worcestershire near Eldersfield and Staunton and part of the old Eldersfield and Longdon Marsh, a wetland wonderland in Victorian times and earlier.  Chris Greensmith is volunteer reserve manager and has been researching the water supplies and drainage and how they affect the flower rich meadows.  The talk will give a fascinating insight into the way in which a floodplain meadow works for its characteristic wildlife.
