Would you like to take part in a day out on the moorland of Dartmoor helping to collect scientific data?

Plymouth University and Dartmoor National Park Authority are combining to carry out long-term monitoring of pools created by peatland restoration works. The rate of colonization of the pools by mire vegetation and the factors controlling that growth are being measured annually.

The event will take place on Monday 18th July, starting at 10am in the car park at Holming Beam, and will involve walking to and from the study site at South Tavy Head (see attached map). This is a total distance of 6 miles over uneven moorland terrain. We will finish by 4pm, so participants will need to bring their own lunch, although cakes will be provided!

If you would like to register your interest in taking part, please speak to one of the staff at a DNPA Visitor Centre, as there are a limited number of spaces available.

In the event of a poor weather forecast, the day will be cancelled in advance.
