The UK and Ireland Lakes Network Conference, in conjunction with Natural England, is taking place in Cheshire on the 14th and 15th of June 2022.

Two days comprising presentations and site visits with environmental NGOs, practitioners, academics, researchers and statutory agencies providing a great opportunity to learn and share experience on:

  • The role of lakes in the context of nature recovery networks, landscape and catchment scale restoration
  • Engagement of citizens in understanding lakes
  • How lake restoration is being delivered across England

The conference includes a day at Nunsmere Hall in Cheshire, with speakers, networking and the opportunity to share posters, followed by an optional conference meal.

We are excited to host a range of interesting speakers, including Tony Juniper, Chair of Natural England. For a full programme of speakers and presentations please download the Conference Programme.

The second day is based around two field visits to internationally designated lakes in Cheshire, Hatchmere and Tatton Mere, to see and hear about issues affecting them, and discuss solutions implemented for their restoration. Including the introduction of beavers, restoring the hydrological regime, altering fish assemblages and improving water quality.

We are currently seeking event sponsors, please get in touch with UKLIN via if you would like to support the event.
