This project will help children understand the very origins of the Broads.
It aims to enable local GCSE and A-level students to visit and undertake practical peat studies at key fen sites. It is part of a national project to monitor peat resources and investigate how much carbon these important wetlands can store. The students will understand first hand the role peat played in the formation of the Broads, its value for wildlife conservation and its place in mitigating the effects of climate change.
Teachers should find all that they will need to run the project in the attached documents, but please contact us if you would like to know more.
