Showing off the Jewel of York at Rawcliffe Meadows

One of York’s most colourful residents and one of Britain’s most endangered species (now only found along the banks of a 41km stretch of the River Ouse around York) – the Tansy Beetle – is to be on show to the public on the 11th May 2014. The event will start at 12:00 midday at the Pond on Rawcliffe Meadows, York.

In a joint exercise between the Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows and the Tansy Beetle Action Group, Dr Geoff Oxford of York University and a national expert on the beetle, will show and talk about them, and the efforts being made to conserve them.

The Pond is at the south of the site, adjacent to the bridge across from Clifton Ings. More detailed directions are available on the Friends of Rawcliffe Meadows website. For more information on Tansy Beetles please read Tansy Beetle Time.
