About the event

Herefordshire Wildlife Trust's Conservation Volunteer Support Officer Ian James will give a brief talk and tour of the reserve, including reference to the management plan.

City Branch committee members will be there in support and to explain plans for volunteer work parties later in the year, including - at first - a day or two cutting and raking the meadow after mid-July (exact time and date tba).

Meet at 19:00 by the gate and cattle grid at the entrance to the reserve, which is at the bottom of the steep drive named "River Meadows", off the B4224 Hampton Park Road on Google Maps.

There is no parking adjacent to the reserve but by 18:00 the popular informal parking verge alongside St Margaret's Road usually has plenty of space; this road is also off Hampton Park Road, a little closer to the city centre than River Meadows. Bicycles can be accommodated on the reserve.
