Events on Lenzie Moss

Butterfly walks

Lenzie Moss is home to a colony of Green Hairstreak butterflies. This species is very easy to miss, as it so well-camouflages against green leaves.

Join staff and volunteers from Butterfly Conservation on an excursion on 17th May or 7th June to look for this beautiful butterfly.

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. Details of dates will be published here when available, and on our Facebook site. Any questions, just give the Ranger Service a ring on 0141 956 6100 or email
