A Rutherglen and Cambuslang charity has been helping youngsters get acquainted with nature.
For Project 31 have been holding a series of nature walks in Holmhills Park in Cambuslang.
Families have undertaken the walks in all weathers and have participated in activities such as pond dipping, bug hunting and flower identification. Two of the walks have been supported by South Lanarkshire Council rangers who have offered additional expertise.
Project manager Lorna Bamford, said:“As we’ve recently been using Holmhills for a range of Forest School groups we decided we’d like more children and families to experience some of what Holmhills has to offer.
“People have been surprised to discover just how much wildlife there is to be spotted and that there are several ponds full of interesting creatures.
“We’ve really appreciated the input from the rangers and the knowledge they’ve been able to share with our children and Project 31 is running a full summer programme of activities for children and families including nature walks and forest school sessions in Holmhills and all sessions are free of charge.”
