The Highland Council is inviting members of the public to join their Ranger John Orr and Conservation volunteers for a spot of snowdrop planting to add even more spring colour to Culloden Avenue in Inverness on Saturday (18 March).

Ranger John Orr said: “This is a great opportunity to get out in the fresh air, help enhance a local green space and meet like-minded people all at the same time. We are very grateful to Smithton and Culloden Community Council for providing the funding for the snowdrop plants. It’s good to be assisting with the Culloden and Smithton Local People Programme which has so much community support. Thank you to its funders, the People's Health Trust and the Trust for Conservation Volunteers.” 

Tools will be provided but anyone wanting to take part is asked to bring a trowel and gloves if they have them. The squad will also be carrying out a litter pick along the avenue.

Culloden Avenue is off Barn Church Road, Culloden and parking is available at the Doocot car park. The session will take place on Saturday between 1pm and 4pm and refreshments will be provided.  Anyone wishing to lend a hand should meet up at the picnic table near the Gruffalo statue. Any children coming along must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

The aim of the Highland Council Countryside Rangers is to promote public enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside and to conserve wildlife.
