MoorLIFE Seminar announcement
Save the date
Moors for the Future Partnership has announced a ‘Save the date’ for their MoorLIFE seminar ‘Sphagnum reintroduction in practice’ in Manchester, Wednesday 11th June 2014.
The seminar, organised by the Moors for the Future Partnership and Manchester Metropolitan University, will take place in central Manchester.
This one day event will bring together practitioners, policy makers, researchers and students to share knowledge and best practice of the reintroduction of Sphagnum to upland peat bogs. Outcomes of the seminar will feed into a best practice guide.
The seminar is an opportunity to learn from the leaders in the field of conservation and land management on the application and monitoring of Sphagnum. It will include an update on the latest scientific research from Manchester Metropolitan University and the Moors for the Future Partnership, as well as a poster session and student workshop on early careers.
The Moors for the Future Partnership has pioneered the landscape-scale reintroduction of Sphagnum in the Peak District and South Pennines - the key aim of the MoorLIFE project is to protect active blanket bog in these areas, which will include the reintroduction of Sphagnum over an area of 650ha
