Jenny Oldroyd from RSPB organised a Calcareous Grassland Management Course at Dove Holes quarry, which was was hosted by Nature after Minerals, a biodiversity initiative run by the Mineral Products Association.
The course was held over two days (4th & 5th July) at Dove Holes Quarry and included guest speakers from CEMEX and the RSPB. Speakers from the RSPB included Jenny Oldroyd (Business Conservation Advisor), Gethin Davies (Senior Agricultural Advisor) and Tim Melling (Senior Conservation Officer).
Delegates included CEMEX staff, MPA members, ecologists, consultants, Natural England and five Councils. It was an event that was well attended and included field trips to local SSSi to help offer delegates practical advice when restoring sites to Calcareous Grassland.
Thanks to Hayden Gill and the team at Dove Holes for providing facilities and catering for the event.
