Volunteer: LIFE quake project day

Volunteer: LIFE quake project day

09:30 – 14:00, Pen y Groes

Quaking with excitement!  

 Join us and NRW’s Senior Specialist Adviser for peatland ecosystems across Wales, Peter Jones, for a day exploring the fascinating quaking bog at Cors Gyfelog.   

As well as learning more about these important habitats, we will be tackling one of the threats to its health, the invasive species Himalayan balsam. The wet ground at the site is a perfect breeding ground to allow the plant to spread even further which threatens to disrupt the fragile ecological balance at this site. 

This work will be undertaken as part of NRW’s LIFE Quaking Bogs project. This is a 5-year project funded by EU LIFE and the Welsh Government that aims to restore peatland, quaking bogs, and their wider supporting landscapes.   

Joins us on the day to find out more about this amazing project.
