Guest blog by Sarah Green, Project Coordinator - Natura People Partnership Project

Do you work in conservation? Are you interested in increasing visitor numbers?  Do you want to improve your educational programme?  Are you interested in working with local businesses but aren’t sure how to start?  Do you need to measure the economic impact of your nature reserve or heritage site?

If you said yes to any of these, please join us in Bruges on Wednesday 2 and Thursday 3 April 2014 as the Natura People project holds a conference to discuss project results and make links with similar organisations.

RSPB Minsmere will be attending, delivering presentations on the on-site educational programme and assessing the economic impact of nature reserves.  Project partners will present their education strategies, branding of Natura 2000 sites and ecosystem services.  The second day will include live demonstrations of visitor engagement activities and  a tour of the Zwin nature reserve.

To view the full programme and register for the conference please visit the Eurosites website.  You can keep up to date with the latest Eurosites news on their twitter and facebook accounts.
