World Bog Day 2023

Published by: Caroline on June 28, 2023

World Bog Day 2023

Bog Day is celebrated around the world every year on the fourth Sunday in July. This year we will be celebrating the brilliance of bogs on Sunday 23rd July 2023. 

This annual event, in celebration of bogs, fens, swamps & marshes is an opportunity to raise awareness of peatlands – the benefits they provide, the threats they face and the ways we can all help protect them.

There are still plenty of opportunities to find out about peatlands and the work being done to protect and restore them. See the Events pages or Peatland Project Map of IUCN UK Peatland Programme to find out about a peatland near you.

If you have peatland resources or upcoming events you would like to share to help celebrate Bog Day please contact
