OPAL Celebratory Event

On Monday 23rd April from 6 to 9pm we will be holding a Celebration Evening for OPAL South West where we will be celebrating the fantastic work the project has undertaken over the last 5 years, with displays from schools and community organisations who have taken part. We would also like to thank our amazing volunteers who have made this all possible.
The evening will begin at 6:30pm in the Roland Levinsky Building with some short speeches, stands from environmental and community organisations and OPAL exhibits. There will be wine, soft drinks and nibbles, and the winners of the OPAL Wildlife & Nature Photography Competition will be announced. There will then be a special viewing of the photography exhibition for everyone attending. This will be a good opportunity to meet people working in the environmental sector too!
This event is to mark the achievements of the project in engaging communities with the natural world and to bring together those involved in continuing this work for the future. We are also very pleased to announce that OPAL will be continuing work beyond our original end date of May 30th, having received additional funding from the Lottery!
This is a public event so please feel welcome to bring friends and to attend whether you have volunteered with us or not.
Many thanks,
Maria Donkin ( OPAL Project Leader ) and Alison Smith ( OPAL Community Scientist )
OPAL, School of Biomedical & Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth, Drake Circus PL4 8AA
