Thursday 21 September 2017

7.00pm at the Boxmoor Trust, London Rd, Hemel Hempstead HP1 2RE

AGM and Visit: Chalk Streams, The Hertfordshire Heritage

Stephen Wilson, Vice Chair of Dacorum Environmental Forum

Our AGM is followed by a short presentation from the Boxmoor Trust describing the work that they do. This will be followed by the main presentation about chalk streams.

There are only around 200 chalk streams in the world, 85% of which are found in England. Most are located in the south and east of England. The rarity of chalk streams puts them in the same league as other rare world ecosystems and endangered species meaning that conservation and management is imperative. However, our chalk streams are under great threat from the over-abstraction of water as well as pollution from drains and agriculture. The impact of climate change on these precious resources will also be considered.

If you wish to attend this meeting, please would you book your places using this booking link.
