Kent Wildlife Trust - free courses

Please find below details of some free courses for landowners which are being organised by the Kent Wildlife Trust over the next few months.

Management of Small Woodlands
16th May – Sandling, Maidstone and Bredhurst Woods – 10am to 3.30pm

Bredhurst Woods is one of the largest blocks of ancient woodland in the Kent Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Similarly to Boxley, it has suffered considerable neglect and misuse in the past, but has been much improved in recent years. 
More details can be found on the Mid Kent Downs Countryside Project and the Bredhurst Woodland Action Group (BWAG) websites. 
BWAG are also now offering firewood for sale for people within 6 miles of the woods - see the logs section on their website.
As a guide to the incredible work that has already been done within these woods please take a look at the gallery section on the BWAG website...a picture paints a thousand words!
