Learn to manage woodland for game and wildlife with the GWCT
This June the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT) will launch a new Woodland Management training day in Leicestershire.
The event is hosted and organised by the GWCT research and demonstration farm, the Allerton Project, and the GWCT advisory service. GWCT are teaming up with the Woodland Trust, Kings and the Forestry Commission to deliver the informative, up-to date workshop on how to manage woodland for game and wildlife.
The day will cover a broad range of topics, from how to plan and create a new woodland to the best ways to manage an established woodland to maximise the benefits for game and wildlife. During the day there will be staff from the Forestry Commission on hand to give advice on countryside stewardship grants and licences. There will also be a tour of the Allerton Project woodlands, taking in new woodland, agro-forestry, plantation woodlands and ancient semi-natural woodland.
The course will be of interest to foresters, game managers, farmers, conservation advisers and land agents.READ FULL ARTICLE
