Join us for our 2016 summer residential weekend at the Knepp Re-wilding Project

The EuCAN summer residential weekend, July 2nd – 4th, will be a camp at the Knepp Estate in Sussex, where the re-wilding project on this former arable and dairy farm is well into its second decade and is showing some stunning results. The weekend will include a wide range of activities including a tour of the project, a Purple Emperor Safari with Matthew Oates, botanical id. and surveying, moth trapping and plenty of fun.

The Knepp Rewilding project is the inspired brainchild of Charles Burrell the owner, and is a very interesting example of an alternative and sustainable method of land management – see  for full information.
