New visual guides capture life in the meadow

Marking National Meadows Day, two colourful new interpretation boards were installed in July at the entrances to the meadow.

The boards outline how Britain has lost 97% of its species-rich wildflower meadows, and how important these meadows were historically, for both communities and for nature. There are drawings of many of the wildflowers growing in the meadow and of some of the pollinators that visitors may see. We hope the new boards will both inspire and educate.

The beautiful illustrations are by Cumbrian artist Ali White, and we would like to thank Cumbria Wildlife Trust for use of some of the images. The boards were designed by Lynne Gorner at Naturally Creative with input from our trustee team.

We would like to thank our funders Plantlife and the Green Recovery Challenge fund. We are also grateful for all the support provided by Carol Edmondson and the Meadow Makers project run by the Forest of Bowland AONB.
