Ranger service appeals for volunteers

24/01/13

Aberdeen City Council's ranger service is appealing for volunteers to work on environmental projects on Tullos Hill and in Torry.

Meeting on a Tuesday, activities will include practical habitat management, basic bush craft, survey work and photographic recording of the site.

Woodlands community ranger, Stephen Bly said: "This is an excellent opportunity for individuals from all over Aberdeen to meet up with other people in order to develop the sites and benefit the surroundings communities.

"Not only would they be exercising in the great outdoors and developing basic skills, they would also be playing a key role in the development of Tullos Hill."

Volunteer rangers are already active in the area, working with Aberdeen Greenspace to develop a core path providing links to Tullos Hill, St Fitticks Park and the coastal path.

This project is expected to be complete by February when the volunteer team will move onto Tullos Hill proper and increase various access points.

Anyone who is interested in volunteering with the rangers and can commit some time on a Tuesday every month is asked to contact woodlands community ranger Stephen Bly by e-mailing lochinch@aberdeencity.gov.uk or calling 01224 897400.
