The Friends of Plean Country Park once again joined forces with the Rangers Service and spent the day chopping and burning rhododendron. These plants are a huge problem in the park as they take over the ground they grow on, preventing any of our native wild flowers from thriving and block the sunlight out. This directly affects all other wildlife in the food chain dependent on our native flora.

The sun shone for our action day, with 16 hard working volunteers helping to remove more of the invasive species, Rhododendron ponticum that is found all over Plean Country Park. After a busy morning, we were treated to a tasty lunch of soup, chilli and baked tatties courtesy of Plean Country Park Friends group.
A huge thank you to everyone who helped out on the day.
