Managing the uplands to deliver public benefits (Invercauld Estate)

Upland managers are increasingly being asked to deliver a wide range of public benefits including carbon sequestration, flood mitigation and biodiversity conservation, alongside commercial agricultural, sporting and forestry management.

Balancing these sometimes conflicting needs can be challenging, but we are here to help.

Join us at an informative meeting on Invercauld Estate to look at balancing the needs of forest expansion with moorland conservation and how peatland restoration delivers benefits for carbon sequestration and flood mitigation. The meeting, which is aimed at estate managers, farmers, gamekeepers and foresters will also consider monitoring of herbivores in the uplands and potential funding sources for upland management to deliver public benefits.

We will hear from Stephen Corcoran, a Peatlands Restoration Officer with the Cairngorms National Park, and Paul Chapman, SAC Consulting.

The meeting will start at the Balmoral Castle carpark by the A93 at Crathie and after an outdoor visit will move on to Ballater Golf Course clubhouse for lunch and an indoor presentation.

The event is free of charge but booking is required for catering purposes. Numbers are limited by the indoor venue size, so please book in good time to avoid disappointment.
