Blanket Bog Course

Sphagnum Moss Sphagnum MossZoomWe are delighted to announce that we will be running a 3-day course on Blanket Bog with Richard Lindsay (one of Britain's foremost experts).

The course will run from Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th August and will cover the identification of plants associated with blanket bogs, including looking at Sphagnum mosses in the field (for those that are brave enough!), blanket bog ecology, assessment of quality of blanket bogs and the impacts of land-use on blanket bog. In short, there should be something for everyone and we can tailor the course a little if anyone has specific areas that they would like to cover.

The cost of the course is £50, including all transport from Lerwick.
