Caring for Our Beautiful Bogs

Event date:
18th April 2019
The Sill: National Landscape Discovery Centre

Join National Park Ecologist Gill Thompson at The Sill to learn about the beauty and function of Northumberland’s internationally important bogs.

Hear about how we look after these special habitats and where the best bogs are in Northumberland and when to visit them. This is also a rare opportunity to hear the story of how we used peat-free growing techniques on the Sill’s amazing green roof.

Following the talk you will be able to join National Park staff in our learning rooms for a close up view of the special mosses that make up our bogs, play an interactive bog game and plant out your own tomatoes plant or sunflower using compost containing no peat.

Talks last approximately one hour.
