The Moors For the Future Partnership’s Bogtastic Van hits the road for Bog Day
The Bogtastic initiative is a programme of activities and communication to explain the importance of blanket bogs and inspire people to value them. Public support for our precious landscapes is vital to protecting blanket bogs for future generations. We want everyone to be inspired, from policymakers to the public, to ensure that blanket bogs are protected for generations to come, for the benefit of us all.
The Bogtastic Van will be visiting Fairholmes Visitor Centre, Upper Derwent Valley on Bog Day this year, so do pop down and say hello!
