The NFBR conference and AGM will be held at Lancaster University on the 12th and 13th May on the theme of “National Recording Schemes and Societies – celebrating the past, looking to the future”.
The conference is being organised in partnership with the Biological Records Centre. It will be a celebration of the work of national recording schemes and societies and will consist of presentations, quickfire talks, discussion workshops and technical demonstrations. It will be followed by a field trip to the Forest of Bowland AONB on the 14th May.
The conference will celebrate the achievements of NSS and help to build on these achievements in future by:
· Highlighting the crucial and evolving role of volunteer-led NSS in UK biological recording
· Raising awareness of resources and opportunities available to NSS and their volunteer recorders
· Facilitating collaboration between NSS and other partners on local and national scales to achieve common goals
The conference will consist of presentations, speed talks, a poster exhibition and discussion workshops. If you would be interested in giving a talk, chairing a workshop or presenting a poster, please contact Graham Walley
