Nature Study in Latvia 2nd to 9th September 2019

Feedback from Stuart Graham, SNH, NET4 2018: I thoroughly enjoyed the training
trip to Latvia. I cannot believe how much we
managed to fit into our week and the attention to
detail to the arrangements from our host (Andis)
was impeccable. The quality of all the individuals
we met was of the highest quality and they were
from the top levels of their respective organisations
and devoted their time to share their knowledge.
Our group stuck together well and we therefore
learned from each other as well as our hosts. We
also got a great insight to Latvian customs,
tourism, diet/foods, history as well as landscape,
wildlife and conservation.
