Local nature reserves

The Countryside Ranger Service manages four local nature reserves around the city, at Den of Maidencraig, Donmouth, Kincorth Hill and Scotstown Moor. 

These sites were chosen for their locally significant wildlife, educational opportunities and community involvement. Each local nature reserve has a management committee made up of local people with an active interest in the site, and specialist advisors. If you are interested in joining your local committee please get in touch.
