Essex Wildlife Trust held two training courses for budding hedgerow surveyors this May, and our new volunteers are now ready to take part in our Living Landscape Surveys this summer!
Our hedgerow training courses use a standardised method to survey hedges to provide us with information on hedge type, management and condition. This helps us to flag up any potential problems and identify areas where we can work with landowners to improve the condition of hedges for wildlife - and for the landowner as well.
Feedback from our 2014 Hedgerow and Riversearch courses:
"Both of these courses were very interesting, informative and enjoyable..... We are very grateful for the time [the trainers] put into delivering some excellent training."
