Additional educators include Dr. Rich Hauer, Mark Duntemann, Dr. Linda Chalker-Scott, Dr. Duncan Slater, Dr. Brian Kane, Frank Rinn, Dr. Giovanni Morelli, Dr. Kathleen Wolf, and Peter Macdonagh. The 3 days will consist of 11 internationally acclaimed speakers, dozens of topics, 35 hours of potential CEUs through lecture and field training.

  10. Hello all, We have a free to attend event on Saturday 9th September celebrating Native Woodlands and tied in with the removal of an old larch plantation, planted in the 1950s, from one of our sites. The event will include equipment demonstrations by Mendip Forestry and felling technique demonstrations by our local and dependable tree surgeons. We're hoping that the event will raise awareness of what the sector is all about! It would be great to know if anyone else has ever ran or been to an event like this before, and any advice regarding advertising and content would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Ian 20170810 NWR event poster.pptx
