WHIA lite Training Workshops – Spring 2023

The Best Practice partners, led by NatureScot and Forest and Land Scotland recently developed a simplified methodology for assessing the impacts of grazing herbivores on woodland habitat.

Known as ‘WHIA lite’ this method has been developed to stand separately to the full WHIA methodology found in the woodland grazing toolbox on the Scottish Forestry website.

We are currently running a series of workshops delivered by James Rainey across Scotland this Spring to train practitioners in its use.

These are being offered at the following locations [will be links to Eventbrite]:

14th April – Glen Orchy
15th April – Moncrieffe Hill (Perth)
21st April – Beinn Eighe
22nd April – Glen Affric
29th April – Muir of Dinnet

During these training workshops we will cover the basics of undertaking this important monitoring method, of which we have the following guides available:
