Wetland plant survey for PondNet

The Wetland plant survey for PondNet aims to list all wetland plant species present at single ponds during the summer months (June-September).

You need to be an experienced botanist to carry out this survey. Because some wetland plants can be especially tricky, we are offering mentoring, if needed to help with difficult species. There will also be online guidance on the website.

An average sized pond should take 40 min to 1 hr to survey, but longer if the pond is large.


  • Look at our online information and download the survey forms.
  • Survey the wetland plants in your pond  between June and September
  • Enter your records online.

Find everything you need to join in on our Volunteer Starter Pack and PondNet Survey Option pages.
