It’s time to get on the bog again

View from the mound on Norton Bog on Boxing Day. It’s a fascinating place.

After a successful event in January, the Friends of Norton Bog are holding another of their scheduled work parties this Sunday.

The Friends of Norton Bog – the area of wetland lying northeast of Chasewater – are taking a special interest in their particular protected habitat, and are holding their second event this Sunday, 12th February, at 10:30am.

If you’ve nothing better to do on Sunday, this could be the thing for you. Families are welcome. This is a hugely important habitat in our area, and this is a great chance to help manage it for future generations. The chance to chat and learn a bit about it’s incredibly diverse inhabitants from some old hands can’t be a bad way to spend a Sunday morning, either. Meet at the car park on the Burntwood Road. Wear outdoor clothes and be prepared to get a bit grubby.

Chasewater Wildlife Group posted the following on their news page:

The dates for 2012 work parties on Norton Bog are as follows:

Further dates will follow if there is enough interest!

Norton Bog is a remarkable wetland habitat bordered with urban development. The importance of such sites cannot be overstated. The Burnwood Road car park is highlighted in red.
