Dear Colleagues
 
I’m pleased to advise you that due to popular demand, NAM is going to be running a second day’s training course on ‘Calcareous grassland, enhancement, creation and management’.
 
This will take place on THURSDAY 5TH JULY at Dove Holes quarry in Derbyshire.  Booking for the original 4th July course is NOW CLOSED.
 
The outline of this course (as appeared in our original promotional leaflet) is as detailed here:
 
“An introduction to grasslands – creation, establishment and aftercare – aimed at the minerals industry.  Join us to learn about creating and managing calcareous grassland habitat to benefit a wealth of species.  We will be covering:  grassland creation techniques; choosing what is right for your soils; establishment; common issues and “what good looks like”, as well as the importance of aftercare management.
 
The course will focus on calcareous grasslands surrounding CEMEX Dove Holes quarry in Derbyshire and will include a light lunch and afternoon site visit.”
 
The cost of this course is just £120 + VAT and includes all handout material, transportation to the site visit area, refreshments and a light buffet lunch.
