Great news from our friends at Edge Hill University - they are to host the inaugural Grassland Conservation Conference. Over to organiser Ashley Lyons:

"Following the successful Conservation Management and Research Conference hosted by Edge Hill University in 2014 they are pleased to announce that they will host the inaugural Grassland Conservation Conference (14th-15th August, 2017).

"The conference aims to overcome the major challenge of dissemination of applied ecological research to conservation practitioners by providing a platform for the development of collaboration and knowledge exchange between scientists and practitioners.

"Held over two days the Grassland Conservation Conference will feature oral presentations from academics, conservation practitioners and policy makers along with a poster session sponsored by the George Stapledon Memorial Trust and a series of parallel workshops and field visits.

"The call for abstracts is now open and there are a number of conference fee waiver bursaries available for students and those working for conservation organisations".
