Join us and Dee Ward as he introduces us to his family's 8000-acre upland estate in the Angus glens. During this engaging event, Dee will lead us through how he has transformed the estate, exploring the initial vision, objectives and challenges and the huge variety of actions he has taken forward: contour and riparian planting, natural regeneration efforts, restoring the Rottal burn to its natural meander and enhancing wetlands.

You will discover the multiple business and environmental benefits these projects have delivered, from biodiversity enhancement to providing shelter and shade for livestock, boosting juvenile fish populations, mitigating floods, and carbon sequestration. All of which have significantly reinforce the estate's environmental capital.

Moreover, we'll spotlight how these impactful projects are shaping future plans for the estate. 

Joining us will be a speaker from Scottish Forestry, sharing insights on funding opportunities and the essential first steps toward woodland creation.

As always, this event is free so sign up for your complimentary place now.

Tea, coffee, and biscuits will be provided.
