Green Walk – Summer Evening guided walk Chartley Moss National Nature Reserve 2 – 4 PM Saturday 13 July

We will be guided by Paul Shires (Senior Reserve Manager for Staffordshire and Cheshire NNRs), who led our fascinating walk last summer at Mottey Meadows.  We are fortunate to be able to visit this site as access is restricted to a few guided visits, due to the fragile and unsafe nature of the peat bog.

Chartley Moss is the largest example of a floating peat bog, or schwingmoor, in Britain. The sphagnum lawn supports important botanical communities adapted to grow in this hostile environment. These plants in turn support a large number of invertebrates.

We are going in midsummer and may get to see some rare species of dragonflies, among other things!

Conditions on the bog will be wet, so please wear wellies, or at the very least sturdy waterproof boots. Unfortunately due to uneven and wobbly surfaces the walk isn’t suitable for people with significant mobility issues.

As numbers are restricted please email to register your interest.
