Plant Identification Skills Training, May & June 2013
01 February 2013
The Mountain Woodland project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and managed by Highland Birchwoods, aims to conserve and expand Scotland's mountain woodland habitat.
With the help of land managers and volunteers the project aims to plant 500,000 trees on sites throughout Scotland over the next 5 years.
Through May and June the project is running a free weekend training course. This will introduce volunteers to specialist trees and plants that grow in montane environments, provide training on plant identification, and look at habitat management techniques.
The course is offered at the following locations:
Glenmore Lodge, Cairngorms National Park 17-19 May
Ben Lawers NNR 31 May - 2 June
Dundreggan, close to Invermoriston, Great Glen 14-16 June
*Participants are expected to arrive on Friday evening and depart Sunday afternoon.
The course is free, accommodation and food are provided, and we will reimburse reasonable travel costs. Please note spaces are limited.
To register for one of the courses or to find out more please contact Ben Davies at Highland Birchwoods (firstname.lastname@example.org)
