NWDG Woodland History Conference, 2011: 10th Nov, Perth, Scotland

The conference organising committee is pleased to announce that the NWDG Woodland History conference (formerly SWHDG) will be held on Thursday 10th November 2011, at the AK Bell Library in Perth. The working title for our theme this year is:
‘Community, woodlands and perceptions of ownership: historical perspectives’
Through this theme we seek to explore the role of woodland history in the growing community interest in woodlands and in changing perceptions of woodland ownership. We are delighted to announce that our key speaker is George Peterken who will consider these issues in relation to the Forest of Dean in particular. The rest of the programme will be firmed up in the next few months. The programme and booking form will then be made available on the NWDG website at http://www.nwdg.org.uk/conference_14.html
