Upcoming Events

Our events for the coming week should be “something for everyone”.

It’s a bold claim to say we have ‘something for everyone’ in our event program – and you can be the judge of this statement.

Wildflower ID at Brerachan Meadow (outdoor event)

July is a fabulous time for Scottish wildflowers and on Thursday 20th July, expert botanist Faith Anstey is coming to one of the Trust’s smaller Perthshire reserves, Brerachan Meadow.

Arranged by our Perthshire Ranger, who will be there, Faith will be sharing her knowledge of wildflowers and how to identify them.

Bring along a tasty picnic and wear clothes suitable for the vagaries of the weather: sturdy outdoor boots strongly advised. Make sure you are comfortable throughout the day (10.30am-3pm) by covering all eventualities of our changeable weather, from suncream to waterproofs!

Due to parking restrictions beside Brerachan, numbers are limited for this event. If you plan to come with others (each require a separate ticket) please car share if possible.

This is an outside event in a stunning, unspoilt upland hay meadow with butterflies and all manner of native species abounding.  The perfect place to be accompanied by a botanist and ranger to reap the benefits of their knowledge.

Please book a place in the link below.
