Paul Green took over from Polly as BSBI's Welsh Officer in October 2017. The Welsh Officer provides support to County Recorders and other active BSBI members in Wales. This can include support in relation to using computers and MapMate to manage data, or in planning a recording strategy.

In June 2018 Paul decided to move back to Ireland so we are now recruiting for a new Welsh Officer. Details here. Deadline 7th September.

Willow Workshop with Paul Green

This workshop took place on Thursday 17th May at Llanelli Wetland Centre, Carmarthenshire. It offered a chance to learn the many willow species and their hybrids. Details of next year's workshops and field meetings will be posted here as soon as they are available so watch this space!

Rare Plant Registers

In March 2017 Wales celebrated the completion of a full set of Rare Plant Registers (RPRs).
