Take a virtual trip to the fell tops with Farming & Wildlife Officer, Sarah Robinson.

The wild uplands of Bowland are dominated by peatland – internationally important for biodiversity and carbon storage. A healthy, active blanket bog contributes to downstream flood alleviation, improvements in water quality, reduction in wildfire risk and also adds to the natural beauty of the landscape.

But its very isolation means that many of its benefits go un-noticed.

Join Sarah to find out what makes our peatlands so special and how the work of the AONB and partners is helping to restore and revitalise this key habitat.

This event will be hosted as a live Zoom session.

Cost: Free – but donations to Champion Bowland (via a link on booking) are welcomed.
