Introduction to Hedgerows
Saturday 29th Sep 2018
10am - 4pm
Hedgerows are boundary features of the landscape and their history is usually reflected in their wildlife. Learn about how hedgerows were created – or planted, their trees and flora, and of species that help to indicate their origin.
We will look at how to create a hedgerow, even within a small site, how to manage the hedgerow and how to encourage wildlife.
Course fee includes FSC fold out chart Guide to Hedgerows.
Leslie has studied and managed a hedgerow landscape including the restoration and/or planting of several kilometers of hedgerow. Leslie is the Butterfly recorder for London Natural History Society and is currently working on a project to map the distribution of butterfly species in London, updating 'The Butterflies of the London Area'.
