75 years of BGS

During the COVID-19 lockdown, we celebrated the 75th anniversary of the British Grassland Society.  BGS staff got together online, and raised a glass to the society.

The Society was inaugurated on 20th June 1945, at which point there were 196 members.  The first President of the Society was Sir George Stapledon.  To find out more about the history of BGS, click here.
