Welsh AGM

The Committee for Wales organises a meeting every year, holding an AGM and organising excursions in a different county of Wales. The 2020 Wales AGM was held via email but the Annual Meeting was postponed to 2021 due to restrictions.

A very successful online Wales Annual Meeting was held on the 3rd July 2021. For more information see the Welsh AGM page.

Red List of Welsh Stoneworts

*NEW* Natural Resources Wales (NRW) has just published a Red List of Welsh Stoneworts, following IUCN Regional Guidelines. The list has been compiled from a wide range of datasets including BSBI data, NRW monitoring data and previous projects. Download the Red List of Welsh Stoneworts and read more about stoneworts here.

Rare Plant Registers

In 2020 updated Rare Plant Registers for Brecknock, Flintshire and Radnorshire were published.

Begun in Ceredigion in 1978, most of the Rare Plant Registers for Wales are now available online on the County pages.  Wales was the first country to celebrate the completion of a full set of Rare Plant Registers in 2017.

Meetings 2021

As well as three one-day field meetings, we are still hoping to be able to hold our regular Caerdeon Recording Weekend in Merionethshire - it's planned for 9 – 12 July. Sadly we have had to cancel the Glynhir Recording Week in Carmarthenshire which was planned for 19 – 26 July. Please keep an eye on the field meetings and indoor events webpage for more information.
