AGS members are invited to support the next stage in our Mardale Mountain Meadow project. The project is a joint venture with the RSPB to restore native alpine plants to RSPB Haweswater in the Lake District.

As the project develops, the site will show visitors many of the beautiful wild plants that are currently restricted to steep craggs and guilles. Many of the plug plants that will be planted have been grown by our members from seed collected from the local area.
