Etna Visit Kingcombe

We recently had the pleasure of welcoming some of our Polish friends to Dorset. The Green Team, led by Roman Guziak, are a group of conservationists from Wroclaw in South-West Poland set up by Etna to train and lead conservation workers and volunteers in the Barycz river valley, a large wetland area near the town of Milicz. They stayed at the Kingcombe Centre in Dorset on a 14 day fact-finding trip hosted by EuCAN.

The Green Team’s visit is a continuation of a partnership between EuCAN and Etna that began when EuCAN took a work party of British volunteers to Milicz in 2009. During their stay at Kingcombe they visited the Somerset levels, the Jurassic Coast, Radipole Lake in Weymouth, the Axe estuary, and Brownsea Island to exchange expertise in conservation management, education and public engagement. Both organisations hope to continue working together in the future on joint conservation projects.
