Friends of Riverside Nature Park

Last night, I attended the latest meeting of the Friends of Riverside Nature Park committee.   We were awfully grateful to Janice, committee secretary, for hosting the meeting as our usual venue (Education Centre at the Botanic Garden) was not available.

There were useful discussions on a whole host of issues, including forthcoming guided walks (there will be a bird walk in early October and hopefully a geocache walk in the autumn too) and the Friends' participation in Dundee's forthcoming Flower and Food Festival.

The great news from last night is that Riverside Nature Park has been shortlisted for an award in the 2013 Nature of Scotland Awards in the sustainable development category.    This is a fantastic achievement for the Nature Park, so early in its life, and I'll be keeping fingers and toes crossed when the award winners are announced on 30th October!
