Wildflower habitats of the Yorkshire Dales

Wildflowers can be found all over the Yorkshire Dales - in hay meadows, ancient woodlands, heather-clad moors and amongst the limestone pavement. These special habitats and their wildflowers provide food and shelter to a wealth of wildlife – including many rare species of insects, birds and mammals.  

By helping you to discover and enjoy these wonderful wildflowers for yourself, we hope you can understand and appreciate their importance, and help us to protect them for future generations.

Thousands of people have done just that since the first Flowers of the Dales Festival in 2009, and with more exciting events to choose from this year we hope to see you celebrating all things wild and wonderful! 

Help save our wildflower meadows 

97% of species-rich wildflower meadows have been lost - one of the best habitats for bees and pollinators. Make a donation or give a Living Bouquet wildflower gift today and help protect our precious meadows.
