Title: Freshwater Biodiversity and Catchment Management Workshop

Date & time: Monday 3rd July 2017 – 10am-3pm (lunch provided)

Venue: Aston University Students Union, Aston Triangle, Birmingham, B4 7ES

Description: Are you keen to know which freshwater plants and animals live in your catchment and how you might be able to help them thrive? Are you aware of the rare invertebrates that might be lurking in a waterbody near you, or which ponds in your catchment support amphibians?

This workshop will present new guidance notes for CaBA groups and others on where to get biological data and what to do with it. New information on conservation objectives and measures will be made available which cover all freshwaters in catchments: rivers, lakes, ponds, streams, ditches and wetlands including bogs and fens. Case studies on two pilot catchments will show how this work can support landscape-scale prioritisation to benefit biodiversity through practical creation and management work.

Cost: This event is free but space is limited so booking is essential – we are now taking reserve list bookings as this event is full (08/06/2017)
