WEE COUNTY residents are being urged to come forward with their views on how best to create wildlife friendly gardens in the area.

Froglife, a wildlife group in Scotland, has appealing for residents to come to a workshop later in the month where they can discuss the best way to go about the project.

The group is hosting the free workshop and public consultation on Wednesday October 24 at the Cambus Bowling Club between 6.30pm and 7.45pm.

A spokesperson for Froglife said: “Your ideas will shape a new project, Come Forth for Wildlife, which aims to work throughout the Forth Valley enabling all parts of the community to develop connections with the natural heritage.

“The project, made possible with a development grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, aims to bring funds, ideas and expertise to help improve the local area for people and wildlife.

“At the workshop, you can also learn tips and techniques for wildlife friendly gardening from Froglife staff and our model wildlife garden activity may give you some ideas for how to make your local patch better for wildlife.”
