Inspiring people to connect with, and take action for, nature is at the heart of our engagement work.

We provide a broad range of opportunities for people to engage with and learn about nature, from our Wildlife Watch groups aimed at inspiring the next generation of wildlife ambassadors, to our Community Action site that provides people with the inspiration and resources they need to lead action for nature in their communities.

You can find out more about our approach to engagement here.

Visitor centres

Our visitor centres are hubs for wildlife encounters, awareness raising and educational activities.

Located in Montrose, New Lanark and Dunkeld, they offer very different but equally amazing experiences.

Community Action


Our local groups and Wildlife Watch groups are a great way for members to get together and learn more about nature conservation, whatever your age.
