Harper ConSoc is a relaxed, friendly society who meet regularly to have fun and learn from each other and their experiences. They have some socials throughout the year, but an important part of the groups motto is a “no pressure to drink” attitude at socials and no initiations. They carry out a variety of voluntary work on campus and in the local area in order to help conserve parts of our local habitats and gain real world experience.
Despite the society name, they are open to all course areas across Harper. Members of the society do not have to be a countryside, geography or wildlife student, so long as there is a keen interest in developing knowledge and practical skills in conservation, this is the society for you.
This years exec team is made up of three 2nd year students, Eloise (chairman), Rebekah (Treasurer) and Wren (Secretary).
A Freshers Camp took place at Preston Montford Field Studies Council 19th October – 21st October.
The society took part in activities such as mammal trapping, moth Trapping and ID skills, Visiting the Stiperstones with a Botanist and learning about the plants and habitats there, campfire and team building, pond dipping and visiting Brown moss to observe the habitat and species there (see pictues below)
