Volunteers sought for tree maintenance at Donmouth Local Nature Reserve
Aberdeen City Council's Countryside Ranger service is appealing for volunteers to help with tree maintenance at the Donmouth Local Nature Reserve.
Saturday's [19 October] event will start at 10am from the Donmouth bird hide on the Esplanade and finish around 3.30pm.
Booking is essential and can be done by calling 01224 897400.
Countryside Ranger Rob Rowe said: "The main work will be to prune some of the trees in this exposed location to help stabilize them and in turn encourage the trees to grow. Where appropriate we will also remove any tree guards.
"This important work will improve conditions for the trees and wildlife in this popular nature reserve and the surrounding area. Other activities to be carried out include litter picking around the trees, where time allows."
All tools and equipment for the day will be provided along with safety briefings.
Everyone is welcome but children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
Tea and coffee will be provided.
Volunteers are asked to bring a packed lunch and wear stout footwear, warm clothes and bring waterproofs.
