Woodlands create a changing environment throughout the year: great swathes of flowers that fill the woodland floor before the canopy bursts into life and dark, secret corners, venerable veterans, animal tracks and areas dominated by brambles or nettles. All these areas, and so much more, are accommodated within our glorious woodlands and they all have their own story to tell. This course will look at the history, management and use, ecology and folklore of our woodlands.
