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.

Within walking distance of the Centre are famous limestone features including Malham Cove, Gordale Scar and spectacular karst landscapes.  The route of the Pennine Way footpath runs very close to the centre.  Nearby habitats include limestone pavement, grassland, woodland and species-rich fen, acid peat pools and stony hill streams.
