Join Forestry Commission Scotland on a guided walk of Bothwell Park on Monday 15th October 2012 from 12pm, to learn about the plants trees and animals of the beautiful autumn season.
The walk is the perfect opportunity to get hats and gloves on the kids and get them into the outdoors to learn about their surrounding area.
Kenny McWilliams, community ranger for Bothwell Park, said:
“This is the third of our four seasonal walks this year which explore the changing seasons of the environment. The first three were a great success and the autumn walk will be really stunning.
"We want to highlight the spectacular seasonal colours of autumn and the walk is a great way to learn more about the changes in the animal and plant life around you. Come along and kick up some autumn leaves.”
Booking for this walk is not necessary. If you want to take part just meet the group at the Gulf garage on New Edinburgh Road at 12pm. The walk will last until 1.30pm.
Forestry Commission Scotland is also celebrating the season by running a national autumn photograph competition on their www.facebook.com/enjoyscotlandsforests page. Readers can submit autumn images to the Commission's Facebook page and have the chance of winning £100.
