Nature Spot Tidy Up – monthly

25 Feb @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm

Litter is a growing problem.  Last year alone, an estimated 25 million tonnes were dropped in Britain, and the problem affects countryside and urban areas alike.  This amount of litter is an eyesore that scars our environment and builds up over time. It is also a hazard to pets and wild animals that use footpaths.  We are able to combat this problem, focussing on various parts of our town.

An introduction to the project…

Our river bank is under appreciated.  Come along and see how wonderful this natural, wild, river bank is.  There are foxes, otters, cormorants, sandpipers, curlews, red shanks, eurasian teal, herons, and salmon and trout in the river to mention but a few.  It somewhere to relax, breath the fresh air, admire the scenery, to play and discover, to watch nature in action, to be outdoors… all on our very doorstep!  It is in fact a designated SINC; a Site of Interest of Nature Conservation.  There is some litter, so this is a local community based group working towards returning Renfrew White Cart River Bank to its natural beauty.  We want to keep it free of litter and rubbish, and to maintain its biodiversity for all of us to enjoy.

The Plan

  • We will meet at the Porterfield Road Entrance at 10:30am on 25/2/18.
  • Typically, our tidy-up sessions run on the last Sunday of the month, however, feel free to help us by doing this more frequently!
  • Appropriate clothing, such as welly boots, are recommended.
  • Anyone is welcome – we’d be glad to see you there.

Prior to coming along, you can find out more about and keep up-to-date with the initiative on our Facebook page here.
