Callander news

Support for Argaty Beaver project

The Trust and the Callander Group Committee have each submitted a letter of support to NatureScot (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.

Monthly talks

We hope to be able to organise monthly talks again over winter but there is still some uncertainty over available venues to allow suitable distancing. Watch this space for updates
