Good conservation practice is dependent on knowledge of the state of species and habitats. We monitor over 30 local wildlife communities and provide volunteers for other wildlife recording organisations.
Part of monitoring wildlife is learning to correctly identify and record it. Many people are members of more than one conservation organisation. All record sightings. We can refer you to such organisations if you have interest in recording such scientifically valuable data.
We monitor the planning applications submitted to Clacks and Stirling Councils and to the Forestry Commission and liaise with these bodies to help safeguard biodiversity interests.
Various organisations offer training on identification. We add links to these on the Courses and Training page.
Our activities include:
We run a monthly winter programme of talks which are open to the public. These are held at Raploch Community Campus in Stirling.
Our talks are designed to be informative and entertaining and most importantly to provide a forum for people concerned with wildlife conservation to meet and discuss local issues.
We also occasionally organise wildlife walks which are usually family friendly. A few walks have been published that you can follow yourself anytime.
Work parties are organised from time-
Our local SWT group is engaged in a wide variety of activities, many of which are open to members and the public. This is just an overview. Please find more details on the relevant pages by following the links in green letters.
