Bookings are now open for the TWIC Spring Conference 2017, which will take place on Saturday 29 April at The Brunton Hall, Musselburgh.
The theme this year is farmland biodiversity and talks will highlight the diversity of wildlife found on farmland - from soil organisms through to arable wildflowers, birds and mammals - and how this interest can be managed. We are also pleased to welcome two previous speakers - Pete Minting (Amphibian and Reptile Conservation) and David Jarrett (BTO Scotland) to give updates on their projects.
The event is free to attend, but booking is essential as numbers will be limited to 80. For information on how to book, as well as a full schedule and transport options and please visit the TWIC eventbrite page.
The Wildlife Information Centre (TWIC) is the Local Environmental Records Centre for south-east & part of central Scotland that collects, collates and disseminates information about the wildlife in our area. TWIC organises two conferences a year to bring together individuals interested in wildlife recording and conservation from across the region. A series of talks are delivered around a conference theme and there is a chance to promote local recording initiatives through displays and open-mike sessions.
