Natural Connections - Thanks to backroom team

Cumbernauld's finest with #VampireSquirrel - Looks like Sandy may have bitten more than he could chew!

The beautiful Scottish Wildlife Trust’s Cumbernauld Glen, was the showcase for our first ever Halloween night nearly three weeks ago now. Seeing how much effort it took to plan, organise and deliver got me thinking about all the work in the background that also helped it become such a success.  Little is thought about the background works, they fade into comparison of the fun had but without them, quite simply, the event would not have been able to take place. … read more

Natural Connections - On the right path

NC_Volunteering_CMG_20150906_©T_Lambert (1) The Cumbernauld Living Landscape weekend volunteering programme kicked-off to a fantastic start.  Recently, we were in Cumbernauld Glen helping to support new path works that had been completed thanks to funding from North Lanarkshire Environmental Key Fund. By simply clearing away vegetation, laying weed matting and adding a layer of stones, we can help to reduce the volume of herbicide needed to control weeds and prevent paths from becoming over grown. In the four hours we were working (ok three, it was hot and we needed breaks) we managed to support 60m of path. … read more
