Look out for a new Nature Reserve near you

Look out for a new Nature Reserve near you

If you live in South Lanarkshire, get ready for some new local greenery.

Sixteen sites across South Lanarkshire will become Local Nature Reserves. This means that these greenspaces will be protected because of how important they are to protecting the environment. They are also considered to be important for learning about nature and to give people who live in the council area time to be close to trees, flowers and wildlife.

Politicians at South Lanarkshire Council agreed it was time to have these new Nature Reserves after hearing about all the work happening to take care of nature.

You can find your Local Nature Reserves all over South Lanarkshire:

•    Backmuir Woods, Hamilton
•    Blantyre, Bothwell and Uddingston
•    Cadzow Glen, Hamilton
•    Fernbrae Meadows, Rutherglen
•    Greenhall, Millheugh and Barnhill, Blantyre
•    Hamilton Low Parks, Hamilton
•    Holmhills Wood Community Park, Cambuslang
•    James Hamilton Heritage Park, East Kilbride
•    Jock’s Burn, Carluke
•    Milton, Carluke
•    Morgan Glen, Larkhall
•    Mossneuk, East Kilbride
•    Neilsland and Earnock, Hamilton
•    Stonehouse Park, Stonehouse
•    Udston and Glenlee Woods, Hamilton
•    Westburn, Cambuslang

Volunteers and communities will be helped to look after these green spaces. Even better, outdoor play will be supported to provide lots of chances for children to explore nature close to their homes!
