We organise recorders' conferences twice a year as a chance for the biological recording community to come together and share updates and information on what they are doing. Anyone who is interested in wildlife recording and conservation is welcome to attend.

The conference will also include an update from the Berkshire Local Nature Partnership (LNP) and their AGM.


Tickets are £10 for students or volunteer recorders and £18 for professionals. This includes lunch and refreshments. Advance booking is required and the final date for bookings or refunds is Friday 20th September.

We would love to hear from YOU about what you have been up to - do you have any interesting sightings to share, upcoming events, or perhaps you are looking for new volunteers? We have a limited number of 5-10 minutes slots available. Please indicate on your booking form if you would like to give an update.


There will be a range of display stands from different recording and conservation groups which you can visit during refreshment and lunch breaks. Please indicate on your booking form if you would like to bring a display and/or leaflets.
