GreenPower Supports RSPB Black Devon Wetlands

GreenPower visit to Black Devon Wetlands in March 2018

GreenPower is delighted to be furthering its support for RSPB by contributing funding which will be used to develop the visitor facilities at the RSPB Black Devon Wetlands reserve in Alloa.

We have been sponsoring the Community Initiative Award for the RSPB Nature of Scotland Awards for the last five years and we are glad to be able to continue our relationship with RSPB by helping them to provide some on site interpretation and to run a year of Community Events at the reserve.

GreenPower staff enjoyed a visit to the reserve in March 2018 and following on from this we are keen to support the ongoing development and promotion of the Black Devon Wetlands to the local community in Alloa. The recently completed pond dipping platforms are being well used by local schools and community groups and the interpretive panels will ensure there is ongoing interest in the site for many years to come.

Black Devon Wetlands is a reserve comprised of a mosaic of wet grassland and wetland habitat including freshwater pools, brackish pools and reed beds. RSPB Scotland aims to restore these habitats so that they are rich in wildlife and accessible to all. GreenPower’s support will help visitors to engage with and understand more about the species found in this remarkable part of the Inner Forth.
