We want to ensure that both people and wildlife benefit from our natural environment. The Natural Connections project is encouraging young people from marginalised groups to learn about, value and celebrate their local natural heritage. It is giving local volunteers the opportunities and skills to make real and lasting improvements to three important wildlife sites. In addition, the project is promoting and celebrating the town's greenspaces through outdoor artworks, events and volunteering. To find out more visit the flagship project page.
This report outlines the impact we have had halfway through our project, which is supported by players of the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund. This work would not have been possible without their support as well as funding from North Lanarkshire Council, NHS Lanarkshire and the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
