Event description

Description

Grasslands are complex systems whose flora is determined by a range of factors including soil type, drainage, altitude and management. The species of grass present can help tease apart these characteristics and help determine the status: how natural, unimproved and diverse the site and inform management decisions. However grasses for many people are dishearteningly similar and difficult to tell apart. This course will help lay solid foundations enabling the individual to understand terminology commonly used in guidebooks though it will focus on identifying species in their vegetative state – commonly required for year-round recognition. The course will spend the morning in the classroom, followed by an afternoon outside looking at and keying out species specific to Three Hagges Wood-Meadow.

The course will be run by John Hadley, Director of CH Ecology, an independent ecologist and consultant, providing surveys and training on behalf of conservation agencies and Local Authorities. John has a background within amenity horticulture as a Technical Manager, providing advice and training to Local Authorities, prominent sports facilities and private land owners. John is an enthusiastic communicator and botanist
