BSBI England Annual Meeting 2020
The first England AGM took place in the Flett Lecture Theatre at the Natural History Museum, London on Saturday 1st February. There was a CfE meeting followed by an open meeting. One of the interactive debates in the afternoon was on “BSBI field projects for the 2020s” - Jonathan Shanklin, CfE Chair, introduced this with an example from Cambridgeshire, where he is County Recorder. After tea there was a herbarium workshop in the room below the Flett Theatre and an opportunity to view the Museum Garden, which we heard about at the recent BSBI Exhibition Meeting.
