Events and Talks
Events March 2018
• Saturday 24 March 11am-2pm. Ardmore wildlife walk
A short, easy walk around a small peninsula in the Firth of Clyde. Excellent views with seal and bird watching opportunities. This section of the River Clyde shoreline is an SSSI because it contains saltmarsh and it also supports significant numbers of wintering birds, in particular: eider, cormorant, goldeneye, oystercatcher, red-breasted Merganser, red-throated diver and redshank.
Meet at Ardardan Garden Centre, Cardross from 10.30am onwards.

• Wednesday 28 March 7.30pm-9.30pm. The Fall and Rise of Flanders Moss – the History and Restoration of a Bog.
The talk by David Pickett of Scottish Natural Heritage will include the natural history that makes this bog so important.
Flanders Moss is the largest lowland raised bog in Britain and is home to a complex bog vegetation. People have struggled to use this wild area for generations and the moss has been targeted in the past for peat cutting for both fuel and horticultural supplies, potentially robbing us of this beautiful wetland jewel.
Meet at Hyndland Secondary School, Airlie Theatre, Clarence Drive.
