Case Study - Dutch Bankers January 2003
'Best of Both Worlds' is a management approach supported by Natural England. The following is an extract from the Best of Both Worlds website -
"Many outdoor pursuits take place in sensitive areas where public access has to be managed in order to protect its natural or cultural heritage. Yet, recreation enthusiasts and conservationists share many of the same objectives:
- to enjoy the natural environment
- to appreciate our cultural heritage
- to expand their understanding of natural processes
- to protect and improve what they enjoy"
A few years ago, the Trail Manager, David McGlade, was asked to provide a Case Study about a large party event which damaged part of the National Trail in 2003. This has been used as an example of why such events need to be better managed by the organisers and what we can learn from it. The Case Study is available to download (see below).
