2015 Golden Plover Award - apply today
The Heather Trust and GWCT (Scotland) have announced that they will be working together for a third time on the Golden Plover Award for Moorland Management after an extremely successful year for the award.
For a second year, Savills will be the lead sponsors. Applications for the 2015 award are welcomed from any owner or manager of land in any part of Scotland who can demonstrate a real commitment to sustainable moorland or upland management.
Applications from the remoter parts of Scotland are encouraged, as are applications from individuals; this is not just an award for estates. The theme for the Award is peatland management and restoration; applicants will be expected to demonstrate how they are managing their peatland to improve its condition.
Initial contact application forms are available to download here. Applications close on 27th February 2015, and the Award will be presented at the Scottish Game Fair on 3rd July 2015. More details at www.goldenploveraward.co.uk
