The workshop will provide participants with the skills required to plan, implement and monitor a project to manage and restore grassy woodland remnants.

Topics covered include:
  • ecology of grassy woodlands;
  • weeds and weed management in grassy woodlands;
  • grassy woodland restoration;
  • grazing for biodiversity;
  • planning a management and restoration project;

  • vegetation monitoring techniques; and
  • where to get help including an overview of funding opportunities.
