Kirkconnell Flow Bog Squad Work Party


Kirkconnell Flow Bog Squad Work Party

Saturday 9th February – Scrub clearance at Kirkconnell Flow (near Dumfries)

The Bog Squad will be removing invasive scrub at Kirkconnell Flow near Dumfries in order to protect it's valuable peatland habitat. If left to grow invasive scrub will take water away from the moss which threatens the specialised flora and fauna that lives there.

The Flow is one of the largest lowland bogs in southern Scotland surrounded by a beautiful pine forest and is home many rare invertebrates such as the increasingly scarce Large Heath and Green Hairstreak butterflies.

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 Kirkconnell Flow (We'll give you directions) or 7.30am meet at our Stirling Office (We offer some transport)
Finish: 3pm at Kirkconnell Flow or 5.30pm 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!

Please let us know you're coming by contacting David Hill on: ZGhpbGwgfCBidXR0ZXJmbHktY29uc2VydmF0aW9uICEgb3Jn or 01786 459813
