It's been a busy time of year for Friends of Nevis with events and volunteer days! Read on for an update...
On Friday the 28th of July, we had Clare Holohan of West Highland Herbal run a day of herbal foraging and remedy making for a group of enthusiastic locals and the Nevis Landscape Partnership Ranger team. Clare led a guided walk where we explored how many amazing plants we have in our local area and their uses, and then spent the afternoon making tinctures and vinegars with what we'd learned!
Then on Monday the 31st of July, three brave Friends of Nevis volunteeres joined the NLP Ranger team on an annual Curling Ponds clear up day! Despite the rain, the group managed to strim the paths, edge and weed the installations, cut back brambles and encroaching foliage, sweep the debris, litter pick, and turn over the fire pits. A huge thank you and well done to everyone involved!
We have yet another exciting event to add to your calendars!
On September the 23rd, one of Scotland's leading field mycologists, Liz Holden, will be hosting a morning's funi foray at Fassfern.
Liz's guided walks are always guaranteed to shed light on the fascinating lives of fungi and the essential roles they play in many ecosystems. Come and learn about our local, native fungi here in the Highlands.
We will be meeting at the Fassfern car park/picnic area for 10am and taking a leisurely walk up the paths and around the woodlands. Fairly sturdy footwear is recommended as we may drop down amongst the trees to get a better look at what's growing.
