Renfrewshire Living Water is funded by the Green Infrastructure Community Engagement Fund and started in 2018. Working across three sites in Renfrewshire, near the city of Paisley to improve and enhance habitat for amphibians and reptiles whilst also having a strong community focus.
The project has completed large-scale works to create and restore ponds in 2018 and 2019 will see many community events take place on these sites to teach local people new skills / techniques whilst making sites more wildlife-friendly. These events are all now listed here – please contact if you wish to attend any of our free sessions, courses or events!
