Friends of Bowland

If you are interested in conserving and/or learning about the Bowland landscape and its wildlife and flora then we would be delighted to welcome you to our regular events and practical tasks. (The logo of the Friends of Bowland shows the flower Myosotis x bollandica - a variety of forget me not that was first identified in Bowland)

Tasks and events in 2019 coming soon!

The Friends of Bowland plan to have at least one event every month, apart from December and January. We aim to have at least one task day every month - apart from Dec. We have walks and outdoor wildlife events in the spring, summer and autumn and talks as the days shorten. Both members and non members are welcome.

Practical tasks

We aim to have a pleasant day out doing some useful practical work. Tea/coffee, biscuits in the morning and soup and rolls provided for lunch on some tasks. Tools and gloves provided. All are welcome. We work till lunchtime - sometimes to 3pm but no problem if anyone wishes to come later or leave early.  Contact Martin Charlesworth for further details 01772 784692 or email

Task dates are generally the last Thursday of the month.
