Cumbernauld Living Landscape is improving Cumbernauld’s greenspaces for both people and wildlife, helping everyone in the community connect with the nature on their doorstep.
We’re working with people across the town to improve habitats for wildlife, improve access to greenspaces, connect young people to nature, improve health and wellbeing through nature and bring people together to make a difference in their local community.
The initiative is a partnership between the Scottish Wildlife Trust, North Lanarkshire Council, Sanctuary Scotland, the James Hutton Institute and TCV.
There are lots of ways to get involved in the Living Landscape, from attending a wildlife walk, joining a green wellbeing group or carrying out practical conservation in your local greenspace.
Our Wild Ways Well open group meets every Thursday and is welcome to anyone who would like to improve their mental health and wellbeing by spending some time socialising outdoors.
The Nature Ninjas volunteers meet every Tuesday and Wednesday to tackle a new conservation challenge. It’s a great way to keep fit and learn new skills and you can join in whenever suits you.
