Friends of Fullarton is a a small charity concerned with the care and conservation of Fullarton Woods, for the benefit of nature and people. We have been in operation since 2015, raising funds for improvements for facilities and tree & wildflower planting.
NEXT VOLUNTEER WORK SESSION
Our next session will be held on Sunday 25th February. We are excited to be finally laying the wildlife hedge using traditional hedgelaying techniques. This should help it thicken out and provide food & shelter for birds & small mammals. We have a few other jobs to do, so will be staying around until 1pm, but feel free to join us until 12md as usual, or just pop in whenever you are available.
See the Get Involved page for more information.
**NEW** JUNIOR ENVIRONMENTAL VOLUNTEERS PROGRAMME for 2024
Our friends at South Ayrshire Ranger Service will be commencing a new programme of volunteer
sessions for young people aged 13-18. These will run once a month in tandem with the
Friends of Fullarton volunteer days. This is a great way for young people to learn basic
bushcraft and wildlife identification and is a great introduction for those thinking about a
future career in countryside management - or simply keeping fit in the fresh air!
