Joint EAZA Zoo Horticulture/BIAZA Plant Working Group Conference 2018

 Email from Stephen Butler, Curator of Horticulture, Dublin Zoo Phoenix Park, Dublin

Hello everyone, hope you are all well and looking forward to seeing Dublin Zoo this year, the weather will be wonderful, the company excellent, and the venue perfect!

Please find attached 3 files:

  1. Registration Form, with costing. Please read carefully and return as early as possible, and before April 23rd.
  2. Field Trip notes, on the gardens and nature reserve we are visiting.
  3. Preliminary programme describing the speakers we have already booked, but please note we will have room for many of you to talk about any successful planting you would like to share, for any reason, animal, educational, decorative, or simply very useful
Please note, city centre hotels were far too expensive, we are instead a little outside Dublin, and will arrange transport to save everyone staying at the Springfield Hotel time and money getting to the zoo. The coach will also pass the second hotel listed and we should be able to collect from there too. Please do tell us if you are staying at either hotel!

Please note, for anyone travelling home on Friday 11th, our last field trip is only 13kms from the airport, easy to get there for evening flights.

For enquiries about the conference please email Aoife at Aoife.Keegan@dublinzoo.ie
