Saltmarsh Conference 2015

A unique conference in an outstanding landscape

Around 100 people attended the AONB's first Saltmarsh Conference on Thursday 8 October 2015 at Snape Maltings, near Aldeburgh, Suffolk.  This event was carefully designed to be of interest to scientists, specialists, researchers and practitioners from across the country and also to people living around the Suffolk estuaries.

We looked at the value of saltmarsh and inter-tidal habitats to our society to inspire action to protect these special and valuable areas.

The Chair and speakers are leaders in their fields from across the UK.  The full Conference Programme is available here.

The presentations are available as pdf documents to view or download by following the links below.
