Connecting for Nature

Keeping Yorkshire folk in touch with their local biodiversity news

February Update on ‘CfN’

Leave a comment

5While unfortunately things have moved slowly for the Connecting for Nature Biodiversity group, we are not at a standstill and you can expect a flurry of activity again following our successful Social Media Workshop in Malton on 19th Feb.
If you want to be more involved in the steering group let us know. The social media event was our next step as we hope that by linking groups up more effectively new stuff can happen across the patch, without necessarily being driven by stretched local authority partners. Communication was identified as a key priority for the partnership when we held our stakeholder workshops at the first Connecting for Nature Summit way back in 2013 (which feels like a lifetime ago!). Admittedly we have not managed to do very well in communicating since then and it may help to have more individuals involved in the informal steering group than the officers of the local authorities….

If you think this could mean you please get in touch with Tim, Don or Liz. If you want to be very modern send us a message via Twitter or Facebook. You can even send a private message if you are feeling shy 🙂

I work in ecology and biodiversity in North Yorkshire. I'm often found outdoors snapping nature and landscapes or spotting birds. In the garden I enjoy having my hands in the earth and striving for the perfect mix of greens and browns in my compost. As a Daddy and adopter I'm used to endless questions about the world around us, and generally have an answer up my sleeve for most things. If you spot me and my hat in real life or on social media do say hello!
