BBOWT held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and conference at Oxford Brookes University on Saturday.
BBOWT has 1,800 volunteers and each and every one of them is important to us.
They are an essential and highly valued resource. They help on the ground, carrying out practical - and often very physical work - on our reserves, they carry out surveys, help with our educational activities and events, work in the office and keep an eye on our livestock. Without them, BBOWT wouldn’t be able to achieve the results for wildlife that it does.
Five people received awards for their outstanding individual contribution.
Carol Dedman has been supporting College Lake’s education administration since early 2014. While much of her work is unseen, she is a hugely important and valued part of the team and her impact is vital.
Driven by her desire to share the huge amount of detailed knowledge she has gained about invertebrates, Sue Taylor wrote, organised and presented the 'Introduction to recording invertebrates' course. The free indoor and outdoor practical seminar took place over four Sundays at Dancers End.
