Not long now until the kids are back at school and while some of you may think yeah! Other may still be looking for activities for them to do in these last few weeks.  Look no more, the Cumbernauld Living Landscape intern has teamed up with two potential new Wildlife Watch leaders for the area and they are delivering pop up Watch days for the kids. 

Based from a Longhouse at Palacerigg Country Park they are exploring the amazing wildlife and habitats that can be found in Palacerigg and Forest Wood Wildlife Reserve.  The team held their first day last Thursday with pond dipping and they had quite the turn out.  They will be holding other activity days running from 12 – 2pm on the 3rd, 9th and 11th of August.

These pop up days are leading to something bigger as we are about to launch a new Wildlife Watch group based at Palacerigg Country Park on the 21st of August for 8-12 year olds.  The Watch Group is the junior branch of the Scottish Wildlife Trust, we have 34 around Scotland and 300 all over the UK in the greater Wildlife Trust family.  Pleased to say that we are going to be the 35th can’t wait to see what the kids get up to.  You can find out more on our web page and our Facebook page – Cumbernauld Living Landscape
