David Blake, Cranborne Chase and West Wiltshire Downs Project Officer is representing the NAAONB on The Grasslands Forum which has replaced the now defunct Grasslands HAP group:
The Grasslands Forum is a nexus of knowledge and expertise relating to the conservation of grasslands. Chaired by Prof. John Rodwell, secretariat supplied by the Grasslands Trust, it is a gathering of national experts and practitioners. It also has the clout to attract speakers from Europe and beyond.
A recent meeting, attended by Dave, at Dinefwr was to discuss the values of grasslands. The next meeting will be to discuss knowledge transfer: how we capture heritage knowledge and wisdom, how we gather and transmit knowledge about grasslands and their management, how data can be turned into inspiration.
