Planning for ‘Dirty Weekenders’

This weekend we have the Dirty Weekender Conservation Volunteers from Edinburgh University coming to East Perthshire to help clean up the pond in Loon Braes (Davie Park), Rattray.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming the conservation students back to Perthshire (see here to read about their previous efforts) and today CG were out planning for their visit.

Come back next week to find out how the group got on… and check out the Dirty Weekend blog to read about the groups other activities!

Junior Rangers help with PKC Forest Plan

Pitlochry Junior Ranger Scheme joined the Highland Greenspace Ranger on a cold but bright Sunday in December to carry out vital woodland management works.

They all helped to clear sycamore, which is spreading in particular in one corner of the woodland.  Using loppers and bow saws they cleared naturally regenerated trees.  Some even had a go at felling small trees, using tree felling techniques.  Watch this space as those involved will be writing their own blog.

If you are a group wanting to carry out work or a project in the great outdoors, the Community Greenspace team are here to help.
