Most people know all about the importance of rainforests, but our local peat moorlands outperform them in storing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and so can help protect our planet from climate change. This moorland walk in the expert company of Steve Garnett rom the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) Reserve at Geltsdale and Alistair Lockett from the North Pennine AONB Pennine PeatLIFE project, will reveal all, including fascinating insights into the remarkable plants, birds and other animals that live here. Like it or hate it, sphagnum moss is a real treasure!
This walk is suitable for anyone staying in Haltwhistle without a car; a mini-bus leaves and returns to Haltwhistle Market Place.
