Location:

Online Event

Date: Tuesday 27th April 2021

Time: 9am - 1pm

Woodland Landowner Workshop

Calling landowners, land managers and foresters - join our Roots of Rockingham team to discover how you can play your part in conserving our valuable woodland wildlife.

About this Event

The workshop will consist of talks by Butterfly Conservation, Plantlife, Amphibian & Reptile Conservation, RSPB and Bat Conservation Trust, highlighting the needs of different species groups in a woodland environment and types of management that can benefit them. The Forestry Commission will provide an overview of relevant legislation and permits, as well as some of the grants that are available.

A site visit would normally be included as part of this workshop, but current restrictions prevent us from being able to offer that. In its place, we will be having a panel discussion, looking at case studies and discussing recommendations for managing different woodlands. Participants can submit some photos/short video of a woodland they would like management advice for. We will pick a selection of these to put to the panel on the day. If you would like to submit some photos or a video, please email these to rootsofrockingham@butterfly-conservation.org by Wednesday 21st April, including info on size of wood and if there are any particular species you are trying to manage it for.

This workshop is free of charge as part of the Back from the Brink Roots Of Rockingham project, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and People's Postcode Lottery.
