Conservation Day - Register Interest

Conservation days

We will be running fewer days ourselves this year as we have joined with partner organisations, including the RSPB and Woodland Trust, to support the formation of a new 'Ness Glens Volunteers' group - see Ness Glens Volunteering Days below. Each organisation will arrange its own tasks but we will co-operate in offering these to our volunteers.


Weds 26 June           Glen Strathfarrar

Checking the trees and the fence on our 2014 planting site, and clearing some of the
bracken. Short but steep walk uphill to the site, a great spot with gorgeous views. A few places
left!


Weds 3 July              Glen Affric

Monitoring day. We will be looking more closely at the forest and young trees, especially
to judge the level of deer browsing. Short walk(s). Nice opportunity to get close to the
finer details of what’s going on out in the glen.


Weds 24 July             Dundreggan, Glen Moriston

Tree nursery and other tasks. Gentle and tougher options. On the nursery we’ll be tending
the young plants, ensuring they get a good start in life. Otherwise taking out some of the
non-native trees that have seeded into our planting schemes.


Weds 14 Aug            Glen Strathfarrar

Another chance to get out to Strathfarrar, checking trees again. Short but steep walk
uphill to the site, great spot, gorgeous views.
