Members of the Caithness Countryside Volunteers met last Sunday (10th March 2013) to help plant trees and wild flowers at the ‘Planting for the Future’ site at Ormlie, Thurso.

The volunteers planted a range of broadleaf trees including rowan and beech and planted wildflowers such as fox glove and cowslip to help provide useful habitat to wildlife at the site.

The Caithness Countryside Volunteers is a group, organised through The Highland Council Planning and Development service’s Countryside Rangers, who regularly undertake environmental projects throughout the county.

If you enjoy practical projects and wish to help with community based and environmental projects, please get in touch with Marina Swanson at marina.swanson[AT] for further information.
