Event description

This is a practical look at restoring, recreating and managing farm-scale wet grassland/grazing marsh and wetlands for waders and wildfowl. Topics covered will include species selection, grazing regimes, water management and the effect on water quality and the diversity of invertebrates. Suitable for those interested in lowland and wet grassland including Environmental Stewardship. Delegates will be actively encouraged to discuss construction, management problems and other methodology.
