Following the success of our online training course in Ancient Woodland Restoration on Canopy Learning we are pleased to offer real-world, in-person days out with our specialists in ancient woodland.
The days allow you to spend time with Jamie Chaplin-Brice and Carrie Hedges as they take you on a tour of some very special woodland sites around Cumbria. The days are based on a theme but will be facilitated to meet the needs of the group and any specific questions that individuals want to explore in more depth.
The courses available are as follows-
