Happy birthday for April!
For this year’s birthday card, we commissioned a local artist to paint a scene in the Forest of Bowland, home to the BSC70 woodland which commemorates 50 years of the study. We have 52 limited edition prints of the painting to give away to study members. If you would like to be in with a chance to receive one, head to the painting the local landscape page to find out how.
You’ll notice that this year’s booklet is a little different compared to previous ones we’ve sent you. We’d love to know what you think of the changes, so if you have a spare minute, please fill out a quick online feedback form.
