Nature Trails and Beach Cleans

What a busy day MOG had yesterday.

First we joined Lochdonhead Primary school at their nature trail. A great opportunity for a photo at the otter sculpture and otter information board.

Then it was over to Lochbuie for the Great British Beach Clean, where the children helped us survey a 100m stretch of beach. To begin with it was raining, which was not in the forecast!  How were we going to get out the paper forms for the survey?  Luckily the rain stopped and we could get the job done.

Along with the other volunteers that went to Laggan, we collected 18 bags worth of plastic rubbish. Thanks to the council for agreeing to pick up the rubbish. Sadly this is an ongoing job, as it won’t be long before more washes in. But there is hope that the next generation can change things for the better!

Thank you to Lochonhead School and the other volunteers for your hard work.
