The Environment Agency Wales is hosting the final SURF Nature conference in Partnership with Countryside Council for Wales (CCW).  Since 2010 the project has collected good practice information about Biodiversity and nature conservation.

This conference will present key policy recommendations on integrating biodiversity and nature into post-2013 EU programmes and be held in Cardiff on 27th September 2012.  The Conference is an important calendar event that will include a session by John Griffiths AM, the Welsh  Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development, Welsh Deputy Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries, Food and European Programmes, Alun Davies and a host of other EU, Welsh Government and Third sector dignitaries.

To kick-start the event, a dinner will be held in Cardiff Castle on 26th September to welcome the dignatries and project partners to Wales.  Cardiff Castle is one of Wales’ leading heritage attractions and a site of international significance. Located in the heart of the capital, within beautiful parklands, the Castle’s walls and fairytale towers conceal 2,000 years of history.
