Join us for our AGM & Members' Day
Saturday 3rd November 2018, Cheese and Grain AGM, 11am -1pm
During the morning’s free AGM CEO Simon Nash, Chair Patricia Stainton and Treasurer John Scotford will tell you all about the work we have completed in the last year across the county, and give you an insight of the year going forwards. You will have the opportunity to ask questions to the CEO and Council. The AGM is free to all members of Somerset Wildlife Trust and we would love for you to join us for the Members’ Day event in the afternoon (details below). Both events are exclusive to our members and are a great opportunity to meet other wildlife supporters and the trustees, staff and volunteers of the Trust.

Members’ Day Event - Climate Change Talk, 1pm - 4.30pm,
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.
