Volunteer plant survey: Thursday 27th September 2018

Bring your boots for a brain and body-boosting botanical blitz at a nearby BOG!

We’ll be surveying the amazing and unique plant communities of a peat bog near Sorn as part of our monitoring programme to assess the health of the peatland habitat before and after restoration takes place.

Volunteers will get the chance to put their plant ID skills to the test by identifying and recording presence/absence of key indicator species. Don’t worry – ID training will be offered! Get a chance to see amazing plants such as sphagnum mosses, cranberry, bog rosemary and the carnivorous sundew!

The survey will involve plenty of walking across rugged, damp (in places) land so a degree of fitness is required. Please bring sturdy boots (gators or wellies depending if it rains before the event), some lunch and a drink, sun protection and something waterproof/warm to wear if the weather changes.
