The Bog Squad will be clearing pine and birch scrub at Peeswit Moss in order to protect its 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 such as the Large Heath butterfly. We’ll be using tools such as loppers, 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.

Start: 10am at Peeswit 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 a warm hat, fleece etc..and a sense of humour! 

Please let us know you're coming by contacting David Hill on: dhill@butterfly-conservation.org or 01786 459813
