Peatland Connections

Peatland Connections will be using creative methods to link people back to their peatlands. The aim of the project is to engage people with peatland land-use decisions, and create a decision-making tool with input from various land users. The project is funded by Galloway Glens Landscape Partnership and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

For more information, visit the project's dedicated website here.

Biosphere explorers

Biosphere Explorers builds on our successful Carbon Busters programme which was rolled out to over 60 schools across Dumfries and Galloway.


This two year project seeks to reconnect those living throughout the Ken-Dee catchment (Carsphairn to Kirkcudbright) with their natural environment and the benefits it can provide.
