Friday 11th January

‘Fire Management of Upland Moors’

Room B, Heswall Hall, Heswall

7.30 p.m.

A talk by Professor Rob Marrs, University of Liverpool.

A hot topic as they say in conservation circles. Upland moors are important habitats not only for conservation as cultural landscapes but also for carbon capture in peat and water provision. Their current management using prescribed fire for grouse is deemed by many conservation bodies to be inappropriate, and they call for a burning ban coupled with wetting up the moors. Alas, it is not so simple as the recent wildfires on the Pennines indicate. Professor Marrs will attempt to provide a balanced view of the issues involved using ongoing research in the North Pennines.

Admission £3. All welcome.
