Scientists will test restoration techniques at a large peatland site in southeastern Manitoba as part of a Brandon University (BU) project supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).
The work will build upon and inform how existing Canadian-based restoration techniques could be adapted to the drier Manitoba climate.

A Brandon University faculty member will soon head to Estonia for his first meetings in his new role as chair of the Expert Group: Peatland Restoration, part of the International Peatland Society.
Dr. Pete Whittington, an Associate Professor of Geography and peatlands researcher at BU, was named to the position earlier this month.
