Upland Habitats & the Impact of Herbivores – Glenclova


Book

The event is being run in conjunction with Wild Deer Best Practice and is targeted to upland estates, stalkers and land managers to help assess impacts on blanket bog and upland heathland habitats of herbivores.

Peatland habitats are determined by peat depth, which influences heather and bog vegetation.  The peatland vegetation condition and height is determined by environmental factors, as well as the level of grazing and trampling. Good habitat condition is important for supporting wildlife and for optimum carbon storage capacity both important factors in sustainable land management.

This event will include an indoor session looking at some of the basic principles in the Best Practice Guides, and an out doors site visit in the afternoon with practical experience of setting out quadrats using the standard herbivore impact assessment methods and discussing management to achieve favourable habitat condition.  Lunch will be provided as part of this event so booking is essential, please use the booking form below.
