BBOWT announces the 2018 Dorothy Morley Conservation Award for wildlife and community projects across Berkshire


 

Community groups in Berkshire with projects aimed to improve their local area for both people and wildlife have the chance to win cash to help them succeed with their vision.


 The Berks, Bucks and Oxon Wildlife Trust is calling on all local community projects that are beneficial to local people and wildlife to apply for the bi-annual Dorothy Morley Conservation Award.  £1,000 is the top prize for the winning project, with £500 to the runner-up project.


 The Dorothy Morley Conservation Award scheme, which has been running since 2000, is a tribute to the memory of the dedicated conservationist Dorothy Morley. The continuation of the award scheme has been made possible through the outstanding generosity of the Morley family.











Full details about the Dorothy Morley Conservation Award are on the Wildlife Trust’s website www.bbowt.org.uk/dorothymorley  Application packs are also available from the Berks, Bucks & Oxon Wildlife Trust, Woolley Firs, Cherry Garden Lane, Maidenhead, SL6 3LJ.


 

Interested groups have four months to apply with the closing date for applications on Friday 29 June, with the winners being announced in late August.
