Devon Wildlife Trust AGM 2021

A chance to find out more

The AGM is a chance for you to find out more about our work and the projects that we are delivering across Devon. Working through the repercussions of the pandemic over the last year brought some unique challenges for us to overcome but thanks to the support of our amazing members we have come through these difficult times and have some great achievements for Devon’s wildlife that we hope to share with you at our AGM.

For the second year running our Trustees have taken the decision to hold a virtual only meeting. We will be using a bespoke conference platform that is user friendly and you will receive details of how you can participate in the meeting from the comfort of your home when you reserve your place. Questions will be able to be submitted in advance by emailing or during the meeting using a ‘Q&A’ facility (similar to that used on Zoom).
