Wild Deer Management and the Work of the SNH. 5th April 2011 Ken Bridge Hotel 7.30pm
Ronald Rose one of the world’s leading authorities on roe deer management will give a presentation on his work at Eskdalemuir. Many members know Ronald having taken their DSC Level One with him. Ronald’s knowledge of roe deer is second to none. For many years Ronald and his father (also Ronald) have managed one of the largest forests in Scotland. Their work on forestry management now forms the blueprint for the planting of forests throughout the UK and Europe. If you thought they just planted a sapling in the ground this will open your eyes into the world of the professional stalker/forester.
Ronald Jnr is now employed by Scottish National Heritage as the Collaboration Deer Management officer for Scotland and is responsible for managing the Case Studies into local sustainable deer management for Scotland. This a Joint-Agency project with representation from FCS, SNH, and ADMG, and he will include in the presentation details of his current work involving deer.
