The Catchment Data & Evidence Forum 2020 and Webinar Programme was held online 18th – 20th August. Bringing together over 200 people throughout the three days it was an opportunity to share and learn about the latest developments in catchment monitoring, modelling, data sharing and analysis.
This new guide shares Tweed Forum’s coordinated, catchment-wide partnership approach to invasive plant species control, from consultation, fundraising and legal and licensing issues to landowner and volunteer engagement, species control methodology, GPS mapping, planning and monitoring.
