Biodiversity of Grassland webinars

Two webinars, held in association with BSAS and SMT, will be held in early 2021, covering the science, policy and practice in relation to biodiversity in UK grasslands.

British Grassland Society

BGS is a membership organisation which acts as a communication forum, through events and publications, for the profitable and sustainable use of grass and forage.  It brings together all those with an active interest in the science and practice of grass and forage production and utilisation; research workers, farmers, advisers, teachers and technical members of the agricultural industry.

BGS is in contact with farmers through its affiliated local grassland societies across the United Kingdom.

The society has many active members abroad and is also a member of the European Grassland Federation.
