Meadow Survey

14-06-22 10:00 - 15:00
Grassmoor Country Park
Address: Grassmoor Country Park, Birkin Lane, Chesterfield, S42 5DA

Help us monitor the vegetation at Grassmoor Country Park to determine how it changes as a result of our natural flood management and habitat enhancement scheme. 

We will be repeating the meadow surveys carried out last year as part of our baseline monitoring of the park so that we can see how things change once works get underway later this year. We encourage those who took part last year to join us again and welcome new volunteers who would like to get involved. Though some experience of plant ID would be helpful, it’s not essential so please do some along if you would like to et involved and learn about some of the plants found in the country park. 


Meet at 10am at the main car park for Grassmoor County Park (south Car Park) off Birkin Lane. Tea and biscuits will be provided but please bring lunches and water with you along with waterproofs if rain is forecast! 

Please contact [email protected] if you would like to join so we have a rough idea of numbers or if you have any queries at all. Apologies if you’ve tried to contact Debbie using the incorrect address given in our latest newsletter!


If you are not yet signed up as a volunteer please email [email protected] to become a volunteer.
