The weekend’s activities will be based at the Malham Tarn Field Studies Centre, which occupies a large Georgian country house, leased from the National Trust.  It is the focus of an internationally important National Nature Reserve and the Tarn itself is one of only eight upland alkaline lakes in Europe.
