International Bog Day is celebrated around the world every year on the 4th Sunday in July. This year we will be celebrating the brilliance of bogs on Sunday 26th July 2020. 

This Bog Day_Logo red&lime_rgbannual event, in celebration of bogs, fens, swamps & marshes is an opportunity to raise awareness of peatlands – the benefits they provide, the threats they face and the ways we can all help protect them.

If you have peatland resources or upcoming events you would like to share to help celebrate Bog Day please contact info@iucn.org.uk.

This site is managed by the IUCN UK Peatland Programme and brings you content from partners and projects around the world working to conserve, restore and enhance our brilliant bogs every day of the year!

You can find out about Bog Day events, download Bog Day branding and activities, and find out what bogs are and why they are special. We’ll be Tweeting in the run-up and on the day from @IUCNPeat with #BogDay.

If there’s a topic you’d like to know more about, get in touch or send us a Tweet and we’ll answer your questions!
