Join us at Neuadd Owen Village Hall, Cefn, St Asaph to learn more about our exciting conservation project – Woodland Resilience: deer and grey squirrel management and hear updates about the work being carried out in the Elwy Valley.

Funded by National Resources Wales (NRW), the project will focus on six areas across Wales covering 200,000 hectares in total. Through it, BASC will work with various partners and stakeholders to monitor and measure the impact that deer and grey squirrels are having on woodlands. This will assist NRW and the Welsh Government to plan how to manage these species.

Following an introduction to the project by woodland resilience officer Hamish Profit, attendees will also listen to guest speaker John Morris (Welsh Government animal health officer) who will give an update on TB in deer in Wales, receive an update about BASC’s Deer Department’s work from deer officer Audrey Watson and will learn about grey squirrel control from BASC Wales country officer Meurig Rees. We will also be joined by BASC Trade member Field and Falcon (Wrexham) who will provide information on equipment / kit used for deer and grey squirrel control.

This will be followed by a question and answer session.

The event is free to members and non-members. (A bar will be available to purchase drinks)

Doors open from 6.30pm for a 7pm start. Presentations will finish at 9pm and our guest speakers will be on hand to answer your questions until 10pm.
