This is a member's only event 

Following our AGM we would like to invite our members to our annual Members' Day event. This year our Members' Day Event will focus on how climate change will impact wildlife in Somerset.
 
Within the last 10 years several new and exciting species like Cattle Egret, Great White Egret, and Black-crowned Night Heron have arrived and bred in Somerset. The distribution of these species is progressively creeping northwards as our climate gradually changes. Climate change is widely considered to be one of the greatest long-term threats to nature globally, so in what other ways will climate change impact Somerset and its wildlife? What gains and losses may result and what can, or should, we be doing now to prepare for this?

We will be joined by a panel of conservation and climate change experts to debate everything from species distribution patterns and pioneer species, to the likely impact of climate change on key habitats like the Somerset Levels and coast. 

The event will start at 1.00pm with a buffet lunch, the talk follows at 2pm and the day will conclude at 4pm with tea and cake. The price for the afternoon event and refreshments is £10.00 per person.

Where: Cheese and Grain, Justice Lane, Frome, Somerset BA11 1BE
