Welsh AGM 2018 & 2019

Every year the Committee for Wales organises a meeting around the Welsh AGM. In 2019, the Welsh AGM was held in Llanelli, enjoyed great weather and took in a range of interesting sites. Head over to the Welsh AGM page to find out what you missed! Next year's AGM is in the planning stage and will be in North Wales.

Meetings 2019

As well as many local and one-day field meetings, there are now two Welsh meetings which are annual fixtures:

The Glynhir Recording Week is held in Carmarthenshire (VC44). Read a report from it here.

The Caerdeon Recording Weekend is held in Merionethshire (VC48). Read a report here.

Rare Plant Registers

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

Begun in Ceredigion (VC46) in 1978, the Glamorgan and Pembrokeshire RPRs are the latest additions to the series (many of which are available online). Meanwhile more updates are still being prepared and planned. 

Training days

The last training event in Wales was the Callitriche workshop held at Llangors Lake on the 22nd of June. Attendees benefitted from expert tuition by Richard Lansdown, the author of the BSBI Handbook for water-starworts (Callitriche spp.)
