  • Hear from Colin Strang-Steel of Threepwood Farm, Galashiels, about how he has integrated wader conservation into his farm
  • Find out about practical conservation measures such as making wader scrapes, organising seasonal grazing and carrying out rush control
  • See how wader conservation can work with your farm business
  • Discuss your experiences of creating and managing wader habitats with local farmers, conservationists and advisors
  • Get advice on how to fund any changes you make..

Booking is required and lunch is included.
