Kent and Medway Biological Records Centre

The Kent and Medway Biological Records Centre is currently still in its infancy. However, we are making progress on a monthly basis. The KMBRC Newsletter has been designed to keep all interested parties informed about our progress and up-to-date on current news.

The newsletter is also a way for us to keep in touch with recorders and our volunteers; some of whom work from home, and so regular contact is otherwise limited.

The newsletter is a quarterly publication and back-dated copies can be viewed here at any time. If you have any ideas for future editions, please do not hesitate to e-mail Info@kmbrc.org.uk.
