Welsh AGM

BSBI Wales Annual General Meeting 2019

The Committee for Wales organises a meeting every year, holding an AGM and organising excursions in a different county of Wales. Details of the 2020 Welsh AGM will be published on this page and on the BSBI Meetings page as soon as they are available.

Welsh AGM 2019

In 2019, the BSBI Wales AGM was held in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire, and was organised by Richard and Kath Pryce, the joint County Recorders for Carmarthenshire. The meeting ran from Tuesday 21st to Thursday 23rd May and attendees also explored the highlights of the county's flora during three field days. These were to Burry Port, Capel Dyddgen and Pembrey Burrows taking in coasts, woods and both acid and basic meadows. Some of the plants seen are pictured on this page (hover over the image to see the caption).
