Event description

Description

The Big Moss Map is a survey of Sphagnum moss in the Peak District and South Pennines.

We are looking for volunteers to walk sections of path and look out for patches of Sphagnum. We’d like you to tell us whether you saw any Sphagnum or not and if you did, some information about the patches you saw.

This training event will explain why Sphagnum is important, how you can tell Sphagnum moss apart from other mosses in the field and provide you with all you need to contribute to The Big Moss Map. There will be a presentation in the Moorland Discovery Centre at the Longshaw Estate looking at Sphagnum ID and the survey method, followed by an outdoor session where we will practice identifying Sphagnum and the survey method.
