Volunteer Training Event: Peatland Survey Skills (Location tbc) – Thursday 19th September


Hydrological monitoring at Common Farm (c) CEI 2017

Join CEI for an introduction to Peatland Survey Skills (FREE).

We’ll meet at 10am, and after a brief introduction to peatlands and their ecology, we’ll demonstrate how to carry out a range of useful peatland survey skills including assessment of site drainage features, a peatland vegetation survey, a peat depth survey and monitoring (and installation) of simple hydrology monitoring equipment.

No previous experience necessary. This will hopefully prove useful for environmental and land management students, land managers and those with an interest in Scotland’s environment.
