New interactive one-day workshops being held at the National Stone Centre next month

THE Institute of Quarrying has introduced a new interactive Biodiversity Workshop to help quarry professionals build their skills and knowledge in this vital area.

This workshop is ideally suited to quarry managers, supervisors, area operations managers, ecologists, restoration managers and those involved in estates management and planning.


Two one-day events will be led by Andy Littler who has spent 40 years in the industry, devising and implementing biodiversity action plans and managing restoration schemes. He will be assisted by ecologist David Broom, a professional ecologist who has been working with major companies in the extractives industry for more than 25 years.

Delegates will enjoy an interactive and engaging session packed with practical examples. The day also includes a field visit to a nature reserve and quarry restoration scheme in progress.

The workshop, which qualifies for six hours of certified CPD, will take place at the National Stone Centre, Porter Lane, Wirksworth DE4 4LS, from 9:30am to 4:30pm, and delegates can choose to attend on either Tuesday 23 May or Wednesday 24 May 2023.
