The Magic of Ancient Woodlands thumbnail

The Magic of Ancient Woodlands 18/11/14

Duration: 1 day

Ancient woodland is native woodland which has had a continuity of forest cover over many centuries. Some of these woods are our last tangible link to the  “wildwood” that once cloaked these islands and are places of great beauty.
This illustrated talk will explain what is meant by an ancient woodland and how extensive they are in the UK and the Wye valley. Andrew De La Haye will explain why ancient woodlands are important to human life and wellbeing, what natural and archaeological features they have and what we can do to enjoy and support them. The talk will also explain the role of the Woodland Trust in preserving ancient woodland.

Date:   November 18th, 2014
Venue: Ross Library
Cost:  £5 per ticket for non members, £4 members, students free.
