Flows to the Future is an ambitious project which is restoring areas of blanket bog in the heart of the Flow Country that have been damaged by forestry planting. It will also promote and develop our knowledge about the role of peat and carbon storage, and involve and connect people everywhere with this precious habitat, delivering real economic benefits for one of the least densely populated areas in Scotland.
The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and is being delivered by the Peatlands Partnership with the lead partner being RSPB (Scotland). The Peatland Partnership is chaired by Prof. Stuart Gibb from the ERI. The Flows to the Future project also counts on ERI’s peatland team to support a number of activities.
