and Monthly Volunteer Days on last Sat of each month (10 am to 1pm). Meet at the cabin. Tools and refreshments provided.
Regular monthly Volunteer Days: thinning saplings, removing western hemlock, improving paths, planting native trees (courtesy of The Woodland Trust).
Volunteers took part in 3 work parties to remove invasive Western Hemlock and clear a ditch. Initial training provided by Cameron Ross, Henry Fosbrooke and John Weaver.
The days demonstrated that significant impact can be made by a team of committed volunteers.
Forester Cameron Ross conducted a guided tour of the woods for Evanton Walking Club on 21 April 2010. He focussed on the management issues for the woodland. He will be running further guided walks for the public, school groups and Guides. Here is a selection of photos taken by Brigit Sharratt.
