Welcome to the Nature of Dorset community ...

The Nature of Dorset community is intended to be an on-line network of like minded people with an interest in the nature of Dorset. It is the part of the Nature of Dorset project where you can get involved, have your say, share information and communicate with each other. Anyone can view the features of the 'community' but only registered members can participate as some control needs to be exercised over spam and unwanted content and the registration process enables this control to be implemented.
