You might not have heard of them, but Local Nature Partnerships are a big deal.
Emerging from the government’s Natural Environment White Paper 2011, ‘The Natural Choice: securing the value of nature’, they aim to bring together local organisations, businesses and people who want to improve their natural environment.
And you can learn about them in the next CPRE Essex talk, to be given in spring by Dr Simon Lyster, chair of the Essex Local Nature Partnership.
The talk is being held via Zoom and everyone is welcome to join the free event, which will last about half an hour, with time for questions afterwards.
A date has not been confirmed, but we are keen to have an idea of numbers attending. Please email office@cpre-essex.co.uk to let us know if you would like to join us for the talk. This would not entail any commitment from you – it is solely to ensure we have a healthy audience for Dr Lyster and can plan accordingly.
