Managed by North Lanarkshire Council, Ravenswood is a rich mosaic of open marsh, meadow, grassland, wildlife ponds and woodland. You can spot wildlife all year-round including insects, song birds, diving birds and mammals. There is an ‘outdoor classroom’ at the main entrance, created by our Nature Ninjas and Wild Ways Well participants.

 

Highlights

  • Listen for the cry of buzzards soaring in the skies above
  • In summer, search for bees and butterflies in the wildlflower meadows and dragonflies and damselflies by the ponds
  • Explore the edges of the ponds, and you may be lucky enough to spot signs of otter tracks
