Building capacity for ecological restoration

The Crichton Carbon Centre manage and deliver the Peatland ACTION restoration training programme. Our two-day events can be held in person (across Scotland), or online and cover both technical and practical content. The events are a space for open, interactive discussions on peatland restoration. Our aim is that you leave with a greater understanding of peatlands and the various restoration techniques used to restore them.

The training sessions are specifically designed for:

  • Contractors looking to undertake peatland restoration projects

  • Consultants looking to undertake peatland restoration projects, peatland condition assessments and feasibility studies

  • Ecological Clerk of Works

  • Agents preparing peatland restoration projects

  • Landowners and Managers

A typical training session includes:

  • An overview of Scotland’s peatland extent and condition

  • An introduction to planning and designing a peatland restoration project

  • An overview of restoration techniques

  • A site visit to look at examples of restoration techniques in action (for in person events only)
