Conservation Day at Drumburgh Moss
About the event
Drumburgh Moss NNR is a nationally important lowland raised mire and one of Cumbria Wildlife Trust’s nature reserves near the Solway Firth. We hope to help protect the peatland habitat by completing some scrub clearance to ensure the peat is not allowed to dry out and to promote further peat formation.
Meet at the carpark/ layby for the reserve. OS Grid Ref: NY 255 586. Drumburgh Moss is located immediately south of Drumburgh village. On entering the village from the Carlisle direction turn left by the post office. Follow the track for about 400m crossing the cattle grid and passing Moss Cottage on the left. Park on the right immediately beyond the cottage. Please ensure your vehicle does not obstruct access as the track is in constant use.
For all events ensure that you bring a packed lunch, wellington boots/waterproof walking boots and appropriate warm waterproof outdoor clothing, ideally with some spare clothes. Unfortunately, due to current circumstances we will not be able to offer lifts at this time.
Our conservation days are a great chance to have a day out and see some conservation projects first hand, plus spend a few hours doing your bit to help CWT with our work. All attendees must be fit enough to walk to sites safely, and not mind getting muddy. These can be remote sites and will have no indoor facilities.
**All conservation days will be conducted in a safe and socially distanced manner. Please ensure you bring hand sanitiser along and not share lunches and equipment. We would also ask that people follow government guidance and not attend if you have any Covid-19 symptoms or are required to self-isolate. Thank you.
