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.
Riparian vegetation plays an important role in protecting streams from pollutants, improving the quality of degraded stream water, stabilising soil and providing food and shelter to diverse fauna, including protected species such as water voles. During this two-day field-based course we will be working in different riparian areas and looking at its vegetation including trees, shrubs, and herbs. We will learn and gain experience in how to identify the different plant species along the riparian corridor.
