About the Event

This is a new workshop designed to explore what is key enviro knowledge and what could be considered further knowledge for Mountain Leaders and Mountaineering Instructors. This workshop is aimed, at two groups of people. Those who feel they know little about the environment and are a little intimidated about going on a workshop and being overwhelmed with information, and those who are potentially going on to train others about the environment. The idea, is that the two groups look at what is, and what is not, 'need to know' about the environment and what is simply ‘nice to know’. We will work as a team to explore a range of techniques that might be used to teach people what it is they need to know. This workshop is a response to the observation that many people attending workshops already know something of the environment and are keen to expand their knowledge even further, this is always welcome of course but, there is another group of people who we are not reaching, are you in that group? If so, nothing will be expected of you and we will keep to a simple and focussed day. I will use a range of teaching techniques, work with the potential trainers and ensure you leave the day with the following information.

You will understand:

Why the geology of Snowdonia is complicated

Myths about glaciation will be busted

Complex land use issues will be simplified

You will learn 8 to 10 plant species

Four bird species

What a lichen is, why fungi is special and how plant evolution can be seen on a hill walk

No more – no less just what you need to know…

I will introduce somethings which are ‘nice to know’ as well, but the aim of the day is to cover what you ‘need to know’.

You will need to book soon for this workshop that there are only nine places and once they're gone, they're gone. You can also receive a CPD point for attending this workshop if you are MTA, AMI, BAIML or BMG member.
