Engaging the Community in Nature Conservation on November 11, 2022 in Canterbury, United Kingdom

Bird Wise East Kent have teamed up with the Plover Rovers to bring you the 2022 Mitigation Meet Up. We have an exciting, packed programme set out for you to enjoy and get the most information possible from the conference so that you can have a more effective community engagement presence. We have a balanced mix of social science and practical based speakers at your disposal to really get the most out of the day.


We are also providing hot lunches and drinks throughout the day to keep you replenished. You'll also get a printed programme for the day and some Bird Wise stationary.
