Dumfries & Galloway has a very important part to play in Scotland’s Peatland story. Around 20% of Scotland’s peatland can be found in our region, but what do we know about peaty water? Using the Upper Urr as an example, this event will feature a number of different peatland water experts, exploring what we don’t and do know!

The Crichton Carbon Centre, in partnership with Galloway Fisheries Trust and the Upper Urr Environment Trust, are kick starting a programme of water quality monitoring, peatland restoration prospects, and waterside gatherings to explore the current condition of the Upper Urr and steps that can be taken to support a healthy river system, riparian habitat, and restored peatland. This first gathering, on Thursday 28th July, marks the start of this pro-active environmental collaboration.
