The Falls of Clyde nature reserve is one of the six sites which make up the Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve. And this year it is celebrating its 5th birthday.
National Nature Reserves are areas of land set aside for nature, where the main purpose of management is the conservation of habitats and species of national and international significance.
There are 47 National Nature Reserves in Scotland and they’re some of the best places for wildlife in the country. They’re managed primarily for nature, but people are welcome too. The Clyde Valley Woodlands National Nature Reserve is unusual in that although it is classed as one National Nature Reserve, it is made up of six sites, making it Scotland’s only composite National Nature Reserve.
To celebrate this anniversary, there are five events to commemorate the five years of being a National Nature Reserve. As a birthday treat all the events are free, but places are limited so be sure to book your place. Whether you’ve never been to any of the sites before, or are a regular visitor, there will be the chance for everyone to discover something new.
Keep watching the blog to find out the what, when and where of each birthday treat . . .
