Free training for community woodland management

Community involvement in woodland management

 

Could there be greater community involvement in the management of

woodlands in your area?

 

Funding cutbacks and lack of resources for public and private landowners leave many woodlands under-managed. Community groups are already demonstrating successful management of local woodlands.

 

Have your say - book now for one of five FREE regional networking events at leading community woodlands.

 

Explore - what's happening in your area, meet community groups, landowners, agencies, policy makers, and organisations able to offer support and advice.

 

Share -- your views in a forum that can make a real difference.

 

Create -- a vision for woodlands & communities in your area, and the support if needed to achieve this.
