4-6 October 2016
Join us to showcase and share best practice from some of the most successful and innovative peatland restoration projects across the UK and continental Europe.
The conference will be of great interest to anyone involved in understanding, managing and restoring peatlands. Just some of the topics include: techniques to remove trees from deep peat, methods of raising water levels in peat using cell bunding and other techniques, practical ways to remove invasive species (including rhododendron), current practices for re-establishing bog vegetation on previously milled bare peat and management that has created valuable lost bog-edge habitat.

We have a added a new, simplified version of the deer survey form, which can be printed off and used in the field for casual sightings or by those with little knowledge of deer species and behaviour but who wish to contribute to this valuable research (all records count!). They are posted to the current deer survey pages at Throne and Peak District:
The forthcoming illustrated talk by Professor Ian Rotherham - Todwick's Historic Landscape: Bluebell Woods & Parks - which was scheduled for 12 July 2016 has been postponed until the autumn. Date TBA but other event details remain unchanged.
In the news we hear daily about new atrocities, corruption and injustice. We hear how mankind is having a devastating impact on global ecosystems. It is easy to feel dispondant, disempowered and hopeless. Therefore, we are bringing three diverse speakers together to tell you about what hope there is for the future and how human kindness and human innovations could be what saves us all…
So come along to drink some of the finest ale whilst listening to the fascinating River Wolton, Nasrin Nasr and Ian Rotherham! Bring your views and questions!
