Join us on Wednesday 17th August at Longshaw in the Peak District – ‘Meet the Bog Mosses’ and discover the ecology, history and identification of these hugely important plants.
Difficult to identify, these mosses form peat and take up atmospheric carbon dioxide – and they hold back the flood-waters by absorbing rainwater.
They form fascinating wildlife habitats and are themselves incredibly interesting organisms. Amazingly in the Peak and Pennines, the bog mosses are staging a remarkable recovery…..
It is free to come and along and find out more – but please book –

There is a second free event on Saturday September 3rd and then a programme of training workshops throughout the autumn. All are supported by the British Ecological Society.
