Habitat Conservation for Insects

  • Centre:  Epping Forest

The course is aimed at anyone with an interest in conserving habitats for insects - no expertise required - and especially for those working in natures reserves, or other land sites, wishing to promote biodiversity.

Information given on how to assess existing species lists for conservation purposes and how to monitor habitats for insects.

Course times are 09.45 to 16.00 and includes a free FSC guide ' Guide to Bees of Britain'. Please bring a packed lunch.
