We celebrate our birthday each year on the third Saturday of October 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.
This year's conference on the 19th October will have a broad wetland theme, tieing in with the current Tullie House exhibition on the Solway Wetlands and celebrating the wonderful variety of species that make the most of our damp Cumbrian climate. Speakers this year include David Clarke on monitoring white faced darters; Ian Wallace on the Freshwater Biological Association and caddis flies; and Jeremy Roberts will be speaking about monitoring rare plants in the upland mires. These are just a few of the interesting talks we have lined up for us: please see the programme for full details.
