Moths

At our AGM Richard Sutcliffe gave a fascinating presentation on moths in a Bearsden garden. These links give some background to the issue and some of Richard's photos.

    We would welcome new committee members. The committee meets three times a year in addition to the AGM. Our main activities are to co-ordinate each year's activities on the Moss - and lead some of them too; liaise with the Mugdock Rangers and EDC's Neighbourhood Services officer about conservation work; and apply for grant funding when it's needed. We have also been concerned with the housing development proposals that could have affected the Moss adversely. If you would like to get involved with any of these activities, or just like to join us as a supporting committee member, we would love to hear from you. Contact details can be found on the CONTACT US page.

    Zoom in for more detail. There are several entrances to the Moss. If you are new to the area we recommend you enter from Lenzie station car park. There is a 2km circular path which is mainly flat with a section on boardwalk across the bog. You will find signposts at several points linking to other walks.
