We will try to keep running the courses  as they appear in the training section but we need to change the way we deliver them in order to follow Government Guidance in the light of the Covid pandemic.

The courses will be deliver using blended learning, a combination of webinars, online resources, homework and 1 to 1 fieldwork.

Verde-ecology Consultancy training courses are mainly field-based and hands on because we believe in experiencing nature, so we will try as much as possible to keep that ethos. With this in mind we can only accept people that are able to travel on the day and don’t need to stay overnight.

If you have a group of colleagues that want to take the courses we can arrange a time table that will meet the social distancing requirements and at the same time be able to cover the course content. Please call me to discuss.

In this practical course we will be exploring calcareous and marshy grassland, blanket bogs, fen and swamp habitats. In each one of these different habitats we will be practising how to identify the grasses, sedges and rushes that dominate these areas and will help you to make ecological assessments, especially for Phase 1 Habitat Surveys.
