Subject: 5th Highland Invasive Species Forum. Nairn. Friday 27th September

Dear All

I would like to invite you along to the 5th Highland Invasive Species Forum. This year we will be visiting Nairn and looking at the INNS Control work that the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Fishery Trust and its partners have been undertaking locally on The River Nairn. The morning will be spent indoors at the Nairn Community and Arts Centre, where there will be presentations from various speakers and the opportunity for some formal and informal discussion. After lunch we shall head out to the River Nairn and have a look at some of the INNS control works that the FN&LFT have been undertaking. Then we shall return to Nairn for some tea and biscuits and then departure.

To minimise the number of cars attending the event we encourage car sharing if at all possible. We shall coordinate this, if you wish to participate, by circulating the emails of those in your area attending the event and asking you to sort out a convenient meeting point and time.

To book your place send you details (see below) to Carol Masheter at or on 07733771186.

Any specific dietary requirements:
Are you willing to car share? Y/N
If yes, were will you be starting your journey from?

I would like to thank Forestry Commission Scotland and The Highland Council for funding this event. Allowing us, once again, not to charge for this event.

I attach the Agenda for the day. I look forward to seeing you there.
