Planning student bog projects with National Park

3rd year Environmental Science will be planning their projects in a couple of weeks. I went out to Lampert SSSI with Abi (NNPA) and Richard (NU) to generate some ideas for them and the biology students.

These are just a few of the current projects:

Comparison of the effectiveness of heather brash, wood chip and nothing – on the stabilisation and revegetation of the peat

Blocking drains creates pools – maybe a student will want to investigate the aquatic invertebrates

Can you see where the brash was cut from? We could monitor the regrowth of the vegetation compared with the uncut area
