This is a member's only event
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.
Following this, we hope you will stay for the Members' Day event in the afternoon, which consists of a buffet lunch, series of talks by climate change experts, and tea and cake. Both events are a great opportunity to meet other wildlife supporters and the trustees, staff and volunteers of the Trust. Both events are a great opportunity to meet other wildlife supporters and the trustees, staff and volunteers of the Trust.You can come to either or both sections of the day but it would be great to see you there!
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 AGM starts at 11am and concludes at 1pm. The Members' Day Event will start at 1pm with a buffet lunch, the talks follows at 2pm and the day will conclude at 4.30pm with tea and cake. The price for the afternoon event and refreshments is £10.00 per person.
