Let’s work together to take…

Action for Nature

Wellbeing for people and nature.

Nature is life, and its diversity is essential to our future. Each part of nature has a role, however large or small. We aim to support our community to understand and appreciate the role and benefits of nature, both globally and locally, so that we can best protect, support and restore our nature.

Kirriemuir is home to some wonderful wildlife. You might see a red squirrel scamper over the fence on the walk to school, or hear some swifts screaming through the town on a summer evening. It’s easy to think these animals, wildflowers and landscapes, will always be there. Yet, our everyday decisions can make it harder for nature to thrive.

We aim to protect and restore nature.

Share your passion for nature with likeminded members in our local community. Join our Action for Nature group now.

What are Sustainable Kirriemuir’s Action for Nature Aims?

  • Promote, protect and restore our local natural biodiversity.
  • Study, record and track our local nature, and share this with our local community to inspire our work.
  • Promote the health and wellbeing benefits of spending time in nature.
  • Study our local extreme weather events, the effects on nature, our vulnerabilities, and help support our community’s resilience with a better understanding of appropriate adaptations.

What can you do to help us achieve this?

  • Join our Action for Nature group who meet every second month and take lots of action, big and small, to maintain and improve habitat for wildlife, and raise awareness, survey and monitor local species, and improve awareness and education on all things nature!
  • Attend our nature themed workshops and events like our Kirriemuir BioBlitz!
  • Help us add to our Wildlife Encyclopaedia to learn more about our local creatures.
  • Take part in some nature-friendly gardening by volunteering at our Community Garden.
  • Tell your friends and family about us, and encourage them to join in with our activities!

As part of our 5 year Strategy…

We want to help our local people learn about nature.

  2. Grow organically.
  3. Sow native wildflowers.
