31 January, 1:00 pm–2:00 pm
On Thursday 31 January 2019, 1-2pm at the Djanogly Theatre, Lakeside Arts the leading forest ecologist and historian Dr George Peterken will discuss how historical maps and records were used to construct the Ancient Woodland Inventory, which identifies and records information about woods that are believed to have been in existence since at least 1600. He shows how history facilitates woodland management decisions and generates public interest and support for woods and forests. This talk is being held in connection with the exhibition Sylva: ‘To slowly trace the forest’s shady scene’
