Conservation Volunteers

Much of the maintenance work on Lenzie Moss is carried out by volunteers, with the help of the Countryside Ranger Service. This takes place mainly during the winter months. Volunteers are needed to keep this important work going, and no previous experience is required. Why not drop in and see what's being done during one of the work days ?

Help from volunteers of all abilities is welcome. Any questions, just give the Ranger Service a ring on 0141 956 6586 or email
