Location: The Royal Oak Hotel


Join us at the Royal Oak Hotel, Welshpool 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 Welshpool area.
Funded by Natural 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, presentations will be given on the following topics by our guest speakers including:
‘General Licences’
~ Glynn Evans (BASC Head of Game and Gundogs’
