Join us for #MembersHour on 15 June with Alastair Boston from the Forestry Commission.
Over the past 50 years, deer have increased in range and number and are now present across most of England. During this session, Alastair will provide a general background on deer, focussing on woodland and deer management, planning, monitoring, and the support available for land owners and managers.
Alastair Boston – Deer Officer, Forestry Commission
Alastair has worked in forestry and deer management in the Lake District for over 35 years. Prior to returning to the Forestry Commission, he was the north of England Deer Liaison Officer for The Deer Initiative for 15 years. He is keen to progress and enhance deer management knowledge to a wider audience, as we all need to think and become more deer aware. Alastair often holds deer best practice events nationally to improve participants knowledge about all things deer management related. He is at his happiest out in the countryside or stood on the side of a hockey pitch coaching.
Taking place on Zoom, this presentation will be followed by an interactive Q&A session.
This #MembersHour will take place on Thursday 15 June between 11:00 and 12:00.
