The free event is at Tullie House Museum in Carlisle in autumn each year.

We celebrate our birthday each year with a free day of recording and monitoring talks in the lecture theatre at Tullie House Museum in Carlisle. We aim for a range of speakers and posters on a wide variety of topics - focused on a particular species, group or habitat; results of recording and monitoring projects; and ideas, techniques and resources to help you get involved. The conference offers a chance to meet others interested in exploring nature, share discoveries and learn more about the species which make their home in Lakeland.

2014 Conference - 8th November

This year we’ll be looking to the future and how digital naturalists are revolutionising biological recording. We’ll be booking back too, with a chance to learn about the botanical collections at Tullie House and what they tell us about how Cumbria has changed since Victorian times.

 This year's conference is on Saturday the 8th November.

Please let Gary (01228 618717; recordingofficer@cbdc.org.uk) know if you would like to bring along displays or posters or have a spot for up to five minutes in the Open Mike.

As in previous years although free of charge, booking is essential with the Tullie House Box Office as places are limited. Please call the Tullie House box office (open Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm, Sunday 12pm to 5pm) on 01228 618700 or go to the Museum reception during opening hours. Alternatively, please email recordingofficer@cbdc.org.uk to book your place.
