An important part of our work is to hunt out inspiring stories about how to make natural landscapes work better.

And, throughout the year, we run a busy programme and courses and events, which are open to all.

These range from skill-based courses like woodworking and gate-making, to more ecological themes like bird watching and flower identification.
