Residents across South Lanarkshire can now benefit from an increased range of ‘Your Nature Space’ cards to help them assess the biodiversity quality of their local environment.
Created by Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) and South Lanarkshire Council, the helpful pocket guides also provide hints and tips on species identification, advice on how to improve nature spaces for biodiversity, as well as other surveys to take part in.
The South Lanarkshire Biodiversity Partnership’s range has been expanded to include four more habitats found in the area and the set of eight cards now covers a variety of subjects including Woodlands, Meadows, Ponds, Bogs, Orchards, Parks and Greenspaces, Rivers and Streams and Brownfield sites.
Emilie Wadsworth, Biodiversity and Heritage Officer at CSGNT, said: “The ‘Your Nature Space’ cards provide locals in South Lanarkshire with an excellent resource to explore and engage with nature on their doorstep. The guides give expert advice on how to take full advantage of the diversity in the landscape and environment across the area.”
The funding for the learning tools was made available through the Developing Local Communities Fund which operates under the Renewable Energy Fund.
