Peatland ACTION - Project resources
Whether to help inform an application to our fund; improve your understanding and awareness of Peatland restoration, or simply to help us spread the word - we hope you will find our project resources helpful.
The Peatland ACTION team have put together a suite of technical restoration demonstration videos to help land managers and contractors learn about the techniques and their successful implementation on-the-ground.
View our Peatland ACTION playlist on our YouTube channel for a full list of techniques (ditch blocking, bunding, reprofiling, and surface smoothing).
Peatland ACTION offers training in methods of peatland restoration techniques used throughout the UK. These two-day events - lead by the Crichton Carbon Centre - is a space for open, interactive discussions on peatland restoration. Interested? Register for future events today with the Crichton Carbon Centre.
Designed specifically for:
- Contractors looking to undertake peatland restoration projects;
- Consultants looking to undertake peatland restoration projects, peatland condition assessments and feasibility studies;
- Agents preparing peatland restoration projects;
- Land Managers and Factors; and
- Ecological Clerk of Works.
We will also let you know if we are attending shows or giving local presentations.
Help us to spread the Peatland ACTION message!
Data collected as part of the Peatland ACTION programme are available as open source data (e.g. project locations, peat depth, and peatland condition). We have added some of the programme's peatland restoration data to ArcGIS Online (AGOL) to provide an interactive map based view of key datasets.
To ensure our restoration work is supported by robust evidence, a monitoring programme at a selection of Peatland ACTION sites is also ongoing (e.g. water table dynamics, water quality, vegetation surveys and drone flights with multispectral cameras).
We demonstrate links between peat condition and fisheries, grouse, carbon storage, drinking water catchments, wildlife, landscapes, human history and so much more.
Listen: In this Podcast we hear from Peatland ACTION Project Officers Ben Inglis-Grant and Sue White both of whom are based on Scottish islands.
