Biodiversity in the Community


Biodiversity is important to everyone, not just official bodies with a specialist biodiversity role. This is reflected by the number of community groups that exist to care for and enhance their local area. The South Lanarkshire Environment Network provides a forum for these groups to meet to discuss projects and share experience, as well as receive training and support from agencies such as South Lanarkshire Council.

Current membership includes:

Friends of Langlands Moss
Bothwell Organic Growers
Brighter Bothwell
Friends of Neilsland and Earnock
Friends of Cambuslang Park
Friends of Morgan Glen

Other special interest groups are active in South Lanarkshire. They include:

Scottish Wildlife Trust local member centres (Clarkston & East Kilbride and Clyde)
RSPB members group (Hamilton)
NTS members centre
Clyde Amphibian and Reptile Group
Clyde Bat Group
Strathclyde Badger and Mammal Group
