Event description

Description

This course is being run by the Old Chalk New Downs Project. The aim of the course is to offer an introduction to carrying out a systematic condition assessment to a chalk grassland. We hope that participants will have to confidence to identify some of the more common chalk grassland species following the course. We are also keen to recruit volunteers to be part of accessing the condition of several other areas of chalk grassland within the area during June and July of 2019.
