The concept of Ancient Woodlands is distinct within British natural history; no other habitat is recognised in a similar manner. This designation identifies Ancient Woodlands as special places with consequences regarding conservation, management and development. This course will explain the concept of Ancient Woodlands and focus on developing the identification skills necessary to recognise Ancient Woodland Indicators across Britain. A range of material examining the history, management, use, folklore and ecology of Ancient Woodlands will be discussed during an entertaining and enlightening day.
