The Scottish Wildlife Trust is inviting people to join them for a range of outdoor volunteering projects at Gailes Marsh.

The projects will help to improve important wildlife habitats at the reserve near Irvine.

As well as the main task for the day, each session will include a short nature walk.

There are three more sessions planned but the trust will make them regular fortnightly events if there is sufficient interest.

The sessions will take place from 10am-12noon on the following: Monday, April 15 (tree nursery maintenance); Monday, April 29 (fence removal on golf course); Monday, May 13 (cut and collect bug hotel materials).

For information, email or contact Rebecca Strofton on or 07739 447964.
