Chester Zoo - Open Day

Sunday 29th July 2018   -    


A couple of years Chester Zoo acquired Derek Clavell-Bates' National Nepenthes collection.  After months of work re housing them in their new purpose built greenhouse and building all new benches for all the plants, they are now ready to show us their new permanent home.  This open day is a must and a great opportunity for a family day out.

Any numbers over 50 will have to pay the zoo's admission charge, (Admission charge for the date is £20.00 per adult).  This will be a first come first served basis and ONLY members who have contacted the CPS meetings organiser and have asked to put their name on the list, may enter the zoo free of charge.  The meetings organiser will require your full name and membership number.  You must contact the meetings organiser by Friday 27th June 2014.  You will then be given details on how to donate to the CPS conservation fund.  Once this donation has been confirmed, your name will go onto the list for admittance.
