Upland Habitat Assessment – Stranraer


Public Goods?  Natural Capital?  AECS?  What does it mean and how will changes affect upland farming?

Support for Agri-environmental schemes and advice on how to manage uplands is changing.  This meeting will seek to address the change in mindset required by farmers in managing their sensitive upland farms to benefit the environment but also to be financially sustainable.  A host of speakers will take us through how to maximise the Uplands through habitat assessments, promoting biodiversity, improving water quality, utilising our peat and woodlands and control of invasive plants.

The day will include a farm tour to discuss how the Galloway family have been managing the farm under 20 years of Agri –Environmental schemes and where the opportunities may be for the future.
