Spring 2022

Friday 18th & Saturday 19th March 10am - 12.45pm

Our Recorders' conferences offer a chance for the environmental recording community to come together to enjoy and share updates of projects, survey initiatives and information on what they are doing. Our Spring Recorders' Conference 2022 will be on Friday 18th & Saturday 19th March. This event will once again be held online due to the ongoing Covid-19 situation and in response to your feedback. Anyone who is interested in environmental recording and conservation is welcome to attend. 

Please note the conference will be held via GoogleMeets. Once registered you'll receive an email at least 48 hours in advance of the event with details of how to join in on the day.


This will be a FREE online event but booking is essential. Bookings now closed.
