Coastal Volunteers - West Sands

Saturday, April 13, 2019
10am - 1pm
Get outside, get some exercise and help our environment by joining our Coastal Volunteer Group. We carry out a range of environmental conservation tasks around West Sands and the wider North East Fife area. The tasks undertaken vary depending on the weather but may include removal of non-native or invasive plant species, dune grass transplanting and tree planting. No experience is necessary as our Rangers will provide any training needed. Just bring sturdy footwear, waterproofs and clothes you don’t mind getting dirty!

If you want any further information on the group, please just get in touch with our ranger Gavin by email on Gavin.Legg@fifecountryside .co.uk or by telephone on 07984 152558.

Meeting Point - The group will be meeting on the Guardbridge to St Andrews cycle track at the St. Andrews end by the entry to the Eden Golf Course.
