The 2017 Cumbria Woodland Festival will take place on Saturday 18th March in the beautiful setting of Halecat House in Witherslack, near Grange-over-Sands. A range of exhibitors and demonstrators will be showing equipment and techniques suitable for managing woodlands in Cumbria – especially the smaller ones, which aren’t currently managed. There will be organisations on site to offer advice on management, including grant aid, a programme of short talks and a tour of the Halecat House Woodyard and biomass boiler.
The Cumbria Woodland Festival will be open from 10.00am until 4.00pm and is free for everybody - no need to book. Car parking is available on site, along with refreshments and toilets. Follow the signs to Witherslack and Halecat House from the A590.
The 2017 Cumbria Woodland Festival is part of the Forestry Commission England Making Woodlands Work programme that encourages the long-term sustainable management of woodlands that benefits the environment, wildlife, timber and wood fuel supply. More information on the Making Woods Work programme can be found on the Forestry Commission website. Funding for the event has also been provided by the Lake District National Park Authority, Rusland Horizons and Butterfly Conservation.
