Flower Foray on Cleeve Hill

July 23 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Cleeve Common Quarry Car Park,
GL52 3PW United Kingdom
+ Google Map

The Cleeve Hill area is a Mecca for botanists from Gloucestershire and beyond – join our Flower Foray to find out why. We will walk over the agriculturally unimproved grassland of Cleeve Common and the adjacent Butterfly Conservation reserve looking for typical limestone grassland flowers, and with a bit of luck we will find some Cotswold rarities too. The grassland of the Common is of high nature conservation value and as such has protected status as a Site of Special Scientific Interest. As we meet some of the rarer and more vulnerable species we will learn why it is so important to protect this dwindling habitat.
