The Bog Squad will be clearing invasive birch scrub at Abronhill bog in Cumbernauld to help protect it's valuable peatland habitat and carbon stores.

Invasive scrub if left to grow will take vital water resources away from the bog which threatens the bog's precious carbon store and specialised wildlife that live there. We’ll be using hand tools such as loppers, saws and mini mattocks to remove the scrub.

The work suits all abilities, but you need a steady footing as we will be working on and walking across challenging, uneven and boggy terrain.

Start: 10am at Abronhill (We'll give you directions) or 9.00am meet at our Stirling Office
(We offer some transport)
Finish: 3pm at Abronhill or 4pm at our Stirling Office.

Bring: Water, lunch (hot drink?), wellies or sturdy waterproof walking boots and work clothes - including waterproofs. Be prepared for cold conditions and bring warm hat, fleece etc..and a sense of humour!
