Volunteers are needed to help plant fruit trees in Mugdock Country Park’s newly established orchard.

Strathblane Community Council and Mugdock Conservation Volunteers are calling on everyone to lend a hand on Saturday, February 1 and Monday, February 3 from 10am to 12.30pm to improve their local environment and get involved with their local community by helping on their CSV Action Earth project.

They are looking for people to help plant fruit trees to provide early blossom for bees as well as tasty food for wildlife and visitors.

The activity is part of a six-month campaign called CSV Action Earth organised by CSV (Community Service Volunteers). As part of this year’s campaign, SNH (Scottish Natural Heritage) will be supporting around 170 projects in Scotland through the grant awards of up to £500, aimed at groups that will help support and encourage volunteer activity through practical environmental projects.

Meet the Ranger at the office at Mugdock Country Park visitor centre at 10am on both days. All children must be accompanied by and adult. For further information contact East Dunbartonshire & Mugdock Country Park Ranger Service on 0141 9566586 or email
