Upland Management: Rights & Wrongs

I have obtained funding through the Skills Development Scheme, which is part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme, to run three events in the Cairngorms National Park before the end of March, next year.

The events will cover three different topics in three different locations: bracken control, heather restoration and muirburn. The first of these three events will be held in Glenshee on Wednesday, 4 August 2010 and it will be based on the Spittal of Glenshee Hotel.  Presentations, including one by our own president, Prof Rob Marrs,  will be given in the morning and this will be followed by a series of practical demonstrations on an area of bracken close by, in the afternoon. Further details will be published soon.

The details for the remaining two events are being worked up at the moment, and I will circulate details as soon as they are available.
