Land management training programme 2015
RSPB to hold eight one-day courses on various aspects of wildlife and habitat management
ALTHOUGH Nature After Minerals (NAM) will not be running any land-management best-practice events in 2015, the RSPB will be running its new land management training programme, which may be of interest to those considering the best options for mineral site restoration and biodiversity.
Aimed at land owners, advisors, land managers and others involved in land and habitat management, the series of eight one-day courses will be delivered by experienced advisors who are able to draw upon techniques developed across the RSPB’s reserve network.
Running from late-June to early November, the eight courses are:
- An introduction to wet grassland: 24 June, Millennium Hall, Horton cum Studley and RSPB Otmoor.
- Managing solar farms for wildlife: 1 July, RSPB Hope Farm, Knapwell, Cambs.
- Wet woodland: 16 July, RSPB Dearne Valley, Old Moor, Yorks.
