This will be a joint meeting with GEES, to be hosted by Professor Ian Fairchild. A Karst Science Field Meeting to Dudley Limestone Mines, Wren’s Nest NNR and the Dudley Museum is planned for Sunday 26 October.

Whether you are an academic, an amateur scientist, geologist or a caver wanting to find out more about the karst environment, you should find something of interest at the Symposium. For a provisional programme of presentations see the latest circular.
