Do you like dragonflies, butterflies and bog ecology? – come along to Portmoak on 15th June
We still have spaces on our next Scotland Volunteer gathering.
It’s at Portmoak Moss in Fife, and with the theme of biodiversity, we’ll be hearing from members of Portmoak Moss Community Woodland Group, who look after the moss and are very knowledgeable about its ecology and wildlife, as well as a local volunteer who has been surveying and monitoring invertebrates there for many years and is a font of knowledge and interesting anecdotes about wetland fauna.
We’ll also hear from Gary Bolton, Site Manager, and after lunch we’ll be out on site looking for and learning about mini beasts and bog plants as well as going on a guided walk to hear more about how the site is managed and plans for the future.
Daniele Muir, who is the Scotland Officer for the British Dragonfly Society, will also be there to share her experience and help us to ID beasties!
Portmoak is such a beautiful place, with the stunning bog, and beautiful areas of woodland. It’s close to Loch Leven so for those of you who might travel further, you could make a weekend of it and visit our nearby Kilmagad Hill with its incredible views of the loch and surrounding hills, and also visit RSPB Loch Leven.

Hope to see you there!
