2 Bogs, a swamp and some islands – Flanders Moss NNR
Environment volunteering is this month’s theme within Scottish Natural Heritage. Volunteer work parties are happening on a weekly basic and there are many blog posts published highlighting the hard work they do. Whilst most of the reserves don’t require a theme to highlight the magnificent work the SNH volunteers do for our National Nature Reserve, this theme will prompt us to go into more depth about our volunteers – who we have and to why they are volunteering.
There can never be too many blog posts about volunteers events within our reserves. If it wasn’t for volunteers, tasks would simply not be done within a certain time.
On Wednesday we had a great turn out with volunteers: we had SNH Volunteers, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park volunteers and The Conservation Volunteers all out on force helping with habitat restoration on Flanders Moss. Each volunteer worked extremely hard (as always) and because there was a good number of people they covered a large area. Well done everyone!!
In the next couple of weeks, blog posts will be published highlighting some of our hardy individuals who volunteer, so stay tuned! In the meantime, if you would like to volunteer with us please get in touch! Over the next coming months there will be plenty practical tasks from scrub cutting and bridge building to putting in plastic dams.
