Bowerwood House and Garden

Founded in 1930, the Harrison Institute is committed to supporting biodiversity conservation. It has an active programme of imaginative and award-winning projects with colleagues and students in the Old World tropics/subtropics (especially Myanmar/SE Asia), which focus on research, capacity building, outreach (including workshops and conferences), and working with local communities. The Conversazione will provide a great opportunity to learn more about these activities, see the specialist zoological collections of small mammals, birds, and some butterflies and enjoy the beautiful garden (weather permitting!).
