Urban Grazing Special – ATF London visit to Green Park
Location: Green Park, London
Join ATF London for a slightly different field meeting where the focus will be on grazing ecology and meadow management.
Since 2017 The Royal Parks has run Mission: Invertebrate, a People’s Postcode Lottery funded conservation and citizen science project. Part of this has included a designated area where rare-breed sheep grazing has been in place to monitor its ecological significance.
The visit will cover grazing ecology, meadow management, wildflower and pollinator management in urban parks as well as a focus on the veteran and unusual trees of Green Park.
