HPT AGM & Harefest 23rd May

The Hare Preservation Trust AGM and Harefest.

If you are an HPT member, you will know that constitutionally every year we have to have an AGM. This year, to try and coax more of you to attend, we are holding the AGM in the morning and using the afternoon to hold a Harefest, see poster (pdf). It should be a great opportunity to view all things hare and meet The Committee too!!! The event will also act as the official launch for The Hare Book, which we have produced to show the world the wonders of our favourite mammal.

Milton Malsor is right in the middle of the country between two motorways so really easy access. We look forward to meeting you all there on the 23rd May!!

About the Hare Preservation Trust

The grace and beauty of the brown hare, Lepus europaeus, have become symbolic of the British countryside. After the long winter months there can be few sights more uplifting to the human spirit than the spring-time boxing antics of these delightful creatures.

But the brown hare has become increasingly rare, especially in western regions. It is second only to the water vole as the British mammal which has shown the greatest decline during the past century.
