BRINGING WOODLANDS TO LIFE
Training and events » Event Calendar

Small Woods offer an array of events throughout the year for both members and non-members. These range from online talks, workshops and seminars to visits to members woodlands, and meet and greets at shows across the UK. A full range of upcoming events can be found in the course calendar below with categories as follows:

Online Events: We aim to bring you a range of online talks, workshops and seminars. We cover plant health (pests and disease) in some format on a monthly basis and also run some of our talks as a series. Our current series is being given in partnership with the Squirrel Accord. The final two talks are being given by Kay Haw on Red Squirrel Conservation and Grey Squirrel damage.

Members Woodlands: These events are where both members are given the opportunity to visit other members woodlands and often discuss management techniques, sharing advice and getting a taste for what other members are up to!

Meet and Greets: This is the opportunity for us to meet you and for you to find out more about what Small Woods is up to at shows all across the UK.

WoodsMeet: Being a new type of event, WoodsMeet’s are the opportunity for members and us here at Small Woods to meet one another and exchange views and input to the wider work being done by the association on members behalf.

New for the Spring!

We have two new series of events starting - Tree Talks and a Walk in the Woods. The first tree talk is ‘Wild Service’ and will be held on the 26th March at 11am, Nick Marsh our new biodiversity project officer will be covering everything you ever wanted to know about the Wild Service tree. Our next will be in late April when we will be talking about Aspen.

The first walk in the woods will be after Easter – this will be a live online walk around a woodland! If you are interested in sharing your woodland with others and have a good mobile signal please get in touch with Amanda at [email protected]

You can book a place for our events below, if it is an online event we will email you the day before with a zoom link. For more information please email Sonia at [email protected] or 01952 432769.
