FBA North East and Yorkshire Regional Group

The north east and Yorkshire regional group was formed in 2007, maintains a mailing list of ~250 individuals and meets once or twice per year. It is open to anyone with an interest in the ecology and biology of streams, rivers, ponds, wetlands, lakes and canals, including academics, consultants, government agencies, planners and specialist interest groups. The aims of the groups are to: increase awareness of the range of freshwater ecology work being undertaken in the north east and Yorkshire region, provide opportunities for discussion among a spectrum of practitioners, and act as an impetus for future collaborative work and knowledge exchange between different parties. Past meetings have been held in Leeds, Hull, Durham and Newcastle, and in 2010 we hosted the FBA Annual General Meeting. The group welcomes offers to host future meetings.

FBA North East and Yorkshire Regional Group Meeting

The FBA North East and Yorkshire Regional Group is re-launching with initially, an evening meeting on the 28th July hosted by the Canal and River Trust in Leeds. The group is open to anyone with an interest in the ecology and biology of streams, rivers, ponds, wetlands, lakes and canals, including academics, consultants, government agencies, planners and specialist interest groups. The aim is to ensure a mix of research focused and applied talks at each event, which should interest be sufficient, will involve a mix of day and evening sessions.

The aim of the group is to: increase awareness of the range of freshwater ecology work being undertaken in the north east and Yorkshire region, provide opportunities for discussion among a spectrum of practitioners, and act as an impetus for future collaborative work and knowledge exchange between different parties. The first meeting will be held between 1900 and 2100 at the CRT North East office, at Fearns Wharf in Leeds (LS9 8PB).
