Please note that due to the ongoing coronavirus restrictions no face-to-face public events will be going on until further notice.
However we are now running Stay Home, Stay Wild – a series of online events and activities, and downloadable resources to help you through this difficult period. We hope this is something that local people of all ages will enjoy – a whole range of activities, with something to do, watch or learn about every day.
Check out the calendar for details of online events coming up in the next few weeks. The list is being constantly updated with new activities and more information, so do check back regularly.
If you need further details you can contact us for more information.
In addition to these ‘events’ we will be publishing a weekly series of booklets each Friday, which will each focus on a local wildlife site. The first one, coming out on 29 January, will be based around St Maurice’s Pond, and will include a self-led walk, a wildlife spotting guide, and a treasure trail to make things fun for the whole family. Future booklets will feature Cumbernauld Village, Ravenswood, Cumbernauld Community Park, and Abronhill and The Glen, with more in the pipeline.
If you follow us on Facebook and Twitter, to start the week the team is bringing back the very popular Lockdown Hour. Trainees Teri Grieve and Katie Brown will post pics on the our Twitter feed of local wildlife they’ve spotted on their own lockdown walks each week, and invite people to add their own comments and sightings via a round-up on our Facebook page each Monday.
There will also be a series of Wild Ways Well tips appearing on our feeds every week, with loads of helpful and inspiring ways to find inspiration and joy in the natural world.
Finally you can always visit our Activities page for free, downloadable worksheets to try out in your garden or while walking in your local area.
