Carrifran weekend high camp - August 31st and September 1st 2013
We are looking for volunteers prepared to make a strenuous but rewarding trip up to Firth Hope, where we will remove a redundant 200m fence which surrounds the initial Salix lapponum planting in 2003, and re-use the materials to reduce the amount of deep peat erosion at the source of the Little Firthhope Burn.
Hugh Chalmers, Project Officer at Carrifran from 2000 to 2008, and qualified Summer Mountain Leader, will lead the trip, with support from other BFT staff and experienced volunteers.
To learn more about this special event refer to the High Planting camp flyer.
