1. Illustrated Presentation and Friends AGM – Monday 11 June 2018

Thanks to everyone that came along to our AGM and illustrated presentation last night.

Hopefully, everyone found Scott Ferguson’s presentation illuminating and thought provoking.

For those unable to attend, Scott described the Seven Lochs project area which covers a number of LNRs and other important wildlife sites including SSSIs. It ranges from Hogganfield Loch, in Glasgow, to Garnqueen Loch, in North Lanarkshire and features a network of important woodlands, grasslands and wetlands. Having described the project area he also explained the aims and objectives of the project and the various project partners operating in the area. He concluded by posing the question ‘Could some of those closely linked sites together become Scotland’s first urban National Nature Reserve?’

For those not familiar with the area, the following slide show illustrates the areas that could be included in a NNR
