Training Event 2015

Dear All,

I can now confirm that the Hampshire Dormouse Group 2015 training event will take place over two evenings on the 2nd and 3rd of March between 5:30pm and 8:30pm. The course will be a workshop format and cover the following topics over the two evenings: dormouse ecology, legislation and conservation, survey methods, habitat management and training for a dormouse licence.

The venue will be the EPR offices in Micheldever (thank you again to EPR for hosting!).

A copy of the programme will follow. The course is open to both HDG members and non-members.

There will be a nominal charge of £15 for HDG members and £20 for non-members which will go to the HDG to fund future dormouse activities.

Please e-mail me to confirm a place if you would like to attend.

Kind regards,

Emily
