Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) is working with Buglife Scotland, local schools and communities to help transform the John Muir Way into a rich habitat for pollinators.
The Planting for Pollinators along the John Muir Way project aims to help create wildflower areas along the route of the John Mur Way and within 3km either side, by encouraging local schools and communities to plant mini meadows that will help provide foraging environments for pollinating bees, hoverflies and other insects as well as homes for additional wildlife.
Plains Community Futures, North Lanarkshire Council and Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) are working together to create a new public open space in Plains, North Lanarkshire.
The formal football pitch and surrounding land offers opportunities for a range of landscape uses such as tree planting, habitat management and footpath improvements and if approved would offer a valuable asset for local residents and schools.
