We will be clearing birch scrub at Braehead 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 loppers, saws and mini mattocks to remove the scrub.

Braehead Moss is large lowland bog located by the village of Braehead in South Lanarkshire.

Start: 10am at Braehead 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!
