About the event

The Trust puts much effort into grazing, mowing, coppicing and other activities – why? How do we decide what to do? What are the underlying principles? The day will concentrate on the underlying ecological processes in managing habitat, and the basic features of the major habitat types – heathland, grassland, wetland and woodland. The last part of the day will explain the role of monitoring in conservation, and which plants and animals to record in which habitats.

For the practicalities of monitoring, see the Introduction to Ecological Surveying workshop.
