You are cordially invited to our free Project Conference on “Conserving Herefordshire’s Ice Age Ponds” on 2nd March 9.15am – 4.30pm.  We will be sharing our findings from the last 3 years of work of the National Lottery Heritage Fund supported project.

We have many eminent speakers including Dr. Warren Eastwood from Birmingham University, Dr. Mike Jeffries from Northumbria University and our own, Professor Ian Fairchild. Their talks will cover pollen analysis, detailed water testing and the value of ponds as a carbon sink.

We are also delighted to have Tim Holt-Wilson from the Norfolk Geodiversity Forum discussing Ice Age Ponds in Norfolk as well as our own student Olivia Verplanke, from the University of Keele, giving an update on the formation of Ice Age Ponds based on geophysical surveys.”
