On 28 September, join Plantlife as we stand united alongside communities, world-leading experts and charities to ask our elected representatives, current and aspiring, to restore nature now.
Humans have put the planet on a path to a warmer world and now face urgent and interlinked climate and biodiversity crisis.
It is critical that world leaders strengthen not weaken green pledges and display meaningful climate leadership.
Healthy wild plants, fungi & other wildlife species and habitats provide essential solutions to the climate crisis and increasing resilience.
With 2/5 of the world’s wild plants at risk of extinction and only 3% of UK wildflower meadows surviving compared to 100 years ago, Plantlife are calling for ambitious action now.
On 28 September, join Plantlife as we ask our elected representatives, current and aspiring, to restore nature now.
We come together united alongside nature lovers, environmental groups, No Mow May-ers, young people, change-makers and world-leading experts to push for ambitious action for climate and nature.

Join us at The Ucheldre to discover sand dunes through a new exhibition.
In 2023 the Dynamic Dunescapes Project, the Ucheldre and Wild Elements CIC joined forces. The goal? To help Anglesey visitors and residents discover the sand dunes of Rhosneigr, through art. Working together, a programme of activity days has taken place throughout the year, and two films have been produced.
Visit the exhibition to see the works created as well as other arts projects that have taken place as part of the Dynamic Dunescapes project in North Wales.
Monday – Saturday 10:00 – 17:00
Sunday 14:00 – 17:00
All are welcome and you can drop into the exhibit anytime during opening hours, but why not pair your visit with one (or more!) of the following:
For more information about the exhibit please visit https://ucheldre.org/ or contact the Ucheldre
Plantlife‘s work through Dynamic Dunescapes is supporting conservation action in England and Wales to improve the condition of sand dunes.
Join Plantlife and an expert mycologist for an exploration of colourful Waxcap fungi in Deeside.
We will be introducing the work Plantlife are doing in the Cairngorms and the fungi we’ll be looking for during the day.
On the walk you will be practicing ID, learning about waxcap fungi conservation and habitat preferences, as well as surveying to gather information about these understudied species.
Please email email@example.com to reserve a place.
Please bring appropriate outdoors clothing and equipment and remember to bring along water and lunch.

Join us for a livestream, where Sam Jones, Rare Plants and Wild Connections Project Manager, will show you rare plants, and answer questions about the work we’ve been doing.
We’re here to celebrate the 3rd year of the Cairngorms Rare Plants and Wild Connections Project – and there’s an awful lot to celebrate!
Join Sam Jones, Rare Plants and Wild Connections Project Manager, as he takes you live to the Cairngorms to share how we’ve been engaging people all across the National Park in nature conservation since summer 2020.
Watch along and you’ll also learn how the project engaged the community and early career botanists with surveying and conservation work online in 2020 and 2021, and how it’s led to exciting developments such as the Twinflower translocation programme.
Sam also will be updating you with an update on our work with the very rare and poorly understood One-flowered Wintergreen, as well as how citizen science has uncovered previously unidentified waxcap sites in Deeside.
Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Cairngorms National Park, and Nature Scot, for your support of the project.
