Portmoak Moss, Scotlandwell

Sunday 29th April – Scrub clearance at Portmoak Moss (Scotlandwell, near Loch Leven)

The Bog Squad will be joining forces with the Portmoak Community Woodland group to clear birch seedlings at Portmoak Moss in order to protect it's valuable peatland habitat. Invasive scrub if left to grow will take vital water resources away from the bog which threatens the specialised flora and fauna that live there. We’ll be using tools such as tree poppers, saws and mini mattocks to remove the scrub.

Transport to the site is available from our Stirling Office (and occasionally pick-ups can be arranged for places en-route) - please get in touch to arrange this. Or you can meet us at the site. 

Start: 10am at Portmoak Moss (We'll give you directions and information)
Finish: 3pm

Please bring: Water, lunch, 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!  

Please contact David Hill at peatproject@btconnect.com or 01786 459813 to let us know you are coming.
