Castle Meadows, Abergavenny: Bioblitz & Events in May

Castle meadows poster May 2014Castle Meadows in Abergavenny is an area of traditional floodplain meadow between the town and the River Usk. The meadows are managed by the Friends of Castle Meadows, a volunteer group, working with the local council.  Their aim is to restore and enhance the bio-diversity of the meadows while retaining the area as a community green space, encouraging recreational and educational activities appropriate to the area.

Monmouthshire Environment Partnership Board, Monmouthshire County Council, and the Gwent Wildlife Trust are organising a Bioblitz around  the meadows and Abergavenny Castle on Friday evening and Saturday 16th and 17th of May. Wildlife experts will be on hand, and there will be guided walks and other activities for all, so that non-experts have an opportunity to
find out what wildlife is out there.

The Friends of Castle Meadows organise many work parties and events to help manage the area, and are always appreciative of help.  There’s more information on their website:
