The 2023 BSBI Wales Annual Meeting, exhibition and AGM together with the associated field excursions will be based at Gregynog Hall, near Newtown. The theme is wetlands - canal, floodplain, rivers, pools and upland bogs.  Accommodation will be in single-occupancy rooms with shared bathrooms.

A preliminary programme has been prepared that includes:

  • Field visits to local sites of botanical interest. We hope to be able to see Luronium natans (Floating Water-plantain), Potamogeton compressus (Grass-wrack Pondweed), Limosella aquatica (Mudwort), Sparganium natans (Least Bur-reed), Carex magellanica (Tall Bog-sedge) and Pilularia globulifera (Pillwort) depending on suitable site access and the weather.
  • Botanical workshops and a keynote talk by Alastair Hotchkiss.
  • The BSBI Wales AGM.
  • Exhibits and posters prepared by members.

Further details, booking and online payment will be possible via the Wales AGM webpage. Accommodation has been reserved for 25 people so early booking is advised (booking deadline 21 April 2023).
