It's the perfect opportunity to hear about the work we've been doing
This is the best opportunity to hear first-hand about all the fantastic work that has been done throughout the year and to find out about some of our opportunities for the next calendar year. As a charity, we rely on the generous support that we receive from our devoted members and the AGM is the easiest way of explaining to them, just what a difference we are all making to the future of wildlife across Dorset.
The AGM is the perfect platform to inform members face to face just how the Trust is working, what has been done and what opportunities there are and aims we have for the next year. In addition, this year we want to give our members a unique insight into some of the great conservation work being done throughout the county.
Three informal talks from members of staff
Following the meeting itself, which should last for approximately half an hour, we will be holding three short, informal talks from members of our staff who are at the very forefront of the great conservation work that has been going on in the county during the last twelve months.
DWT Portland Living Landscape Project Officer Sam Hamer, River and Wetlands Conservation Officer Sarah Williams and wildflower expert, Conservation Officer Nick Gray will be sharing their stories of what life out on the conservation front-line is really like.
From torrential rain to blistering heat, our conservation officers head out in all conditions, with the sole aim of helping to conserve the wonderful wildlife Dorset has to offer for future generations -so why not come along and hear what they have to say?
Of course, once the official business is done we will be serving some delicious tea and cake and giving our members the chance to relax and mingle with those members of the DWT team in attendance and discuss all things wildlife!
Come along and find out more!
We want to encourage as many of our members to come and have their say as possible because we value their input and what could be better than heading out to our headquarters, situated on a beautiful nature reserve, and find out how all the money that’s been raised is being spent to conserve wildlife in Dorset.
So whether you regularly attend or will be attending for the first time, come along and get a taster of what Dorset Wildlife Trust is all about.
Les Bunce, Honorary Secretary
