It is intended for anyone involved in planning, implementing or evaluating peatland restoration projects. The workshop will focus on restoration of ombrotrophic and minerotrophic peatlands with an emphasis on active rewetting management.
The first day will be an indoor session with seminars where discussion is encouraged.
On the second day, we invite you in the field, in a disturbed peatland, to see how to properly rewet a peatland, what type of vegetation to spread depending on the type of peatland, good practices for harvesting donor material, how to effectively apply a protective mulch and more!
