Latest Bulletin

This month's issue brings the final reminder for conference bookings which are closing in March, and a reminder that poster submissions are still open for the poster session at conference. The River Champions nominations are also closing soon, so nominate someone you know who helps out in their local environment. This issue also looks back at a couple of training courses which took place over February - one held in Northern Ireland looking at community engagement in river restoration, and the other held in Wilmslow, Cheshire, providing an introductory session to hydromorphology. Both blogs from these events are available in this issue, along with lots of interesting job oppotunities and news updates.
