The Kent Wildlife Conference, now in its nineteenth year, was created as a way for field naturalists to meet, learn about and discuss the county’s wild plant and animal species and new ways of recording.
You are welcome to bring displays or other information about work relevant to Kent’s natural history, and we especially welcome posters detailing recent research work. To book displays please contact Dr Gary Robinson at the University (. 01227 823530) at least 7 days before the event.
The Conference will be held in the Grimond Lecture Theatre 2 at the University of Kent’s Canterbury Campus, Canterbury, CT2 7NJ. Free, ample parking is available all day in the nearby main visitor car park.
The cost for the day is £20 per person to include refreshments and a buffet lunch (vegetarian dishes included). You can pay by bank transfer or cheque. See details on the attached application form
