Live from the Cairngorms: 3rd Year Project Anniversary

Join us for a livestream, where Sam Jones, Rare Plants and Wild Connections Project Manager, will show you rare plants, and answer questions about the work we’ve been doing.

We’re here to celebrate the 3rd year of the Cairngorms Rare Plants and Wild Connections Project – and there’s an awful lot to celebrate!

Join Sam Jones, Rare Plants and Wild Connections Project Manager, as he takes you live to the Cairngorms to share how we’ve been engaging people all across the National Park in nature conservation since summer 2020.

What to expect live on the day:

Watch along and you’ll also learn how the project engaged the community and early career botanists with surveying and conservation work online in 2020 and 2021, and how it’s led to exciting developments such as the Twinflower translocation programme.

Sam also will be updating you with an update on our work with  the very rare and poorly understood One-flowered Wintergreen, as well as how citizen science has uncovered previously unidentified waxcap sites in Deeside.

Thanks to the National Lottery Heritage Fund, the Cairngorms National Park, and Nature Scot, for your support of the project.
