We started the day with scientific experiments looking at how wet and acidic a bog is. We also measured the depth of the peat and learned about the plants that grow here. We were lucky with the weather and had a relaxed lunch with roasted marshmallows and chocolate digestives, courtesy of Jim, the Forestry Commission Ranger - yum!
The second part of the day was all about improving the bog habitat. Everybody got stuck in and helped to cut pine trees, that would otherwise use up vital water resources from the bog.
Have a look at the slideshow below, which tells the story of our day in photos:
We are now going to continue our efforts at Easter Drumclair bog, so maybe see you at our workparty there on 22nd November....
