Support for Argaty Beaver project

SWT HQ and the Callander Group Committee have each submitted a letter of support to Nature Scot (ex SNH) for the Argaty proposal to provide habitat for relocation of beavers from the expanding Tayside population to avoid their culling. A decision is expected after a presentation to the Reintroduction Forum in May.

Fund-raising event

Covid restrictions permitting, we will be holding our annual fund-raising event in Ancaster Square, Callander on Saturday 14 August 10am – 4pm. We plan to have a tombola/bottle stall and plant sales with an emphasis being wildlife friendly. We will also be supported by SWT and the Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrels project.
Proceeds are donated to conservation projects and in past years we have donated ~£1000.
Please come along to support us.
