• Reforesting Scotland
Scotland was once a well-forested country with a culture and wildlife tied closely to trees and woodlands. Now much of the forest has been lost and environmental pressures, including climate change, threaten what remains. One of Reforesting Scotland’s directors will tell us what they are doing to help reverse this situation.
Dams to Darnley Country Park is made up of a mosaic of different habitats, providing homes for many species of plants and animals. These habitats include the open water of the Barrhead dams, wetlands and burns that are great for pond life, woodland, grassland and scrub.
