Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival

This year we're celebrating the Glasgow Garden Festival's 30th anniversary.

Glasgow Wild Fest- Support us to create a City-Wide Wildlife Garden

RSPB Scotland and Glasgow City Council have been working  with partners, organisations and community gardens right across Glasgow to celebrate Glasgow as a green city and create a legacy under the famous Glasgow Garden Festival logo.  

Together, we have been celebrating green spaces across the city and raising awareness of the wildlife that’s on your doorstep.

We have worked with over 40 groups city wide to support wildlife themed events, including art installations, wildlife-themed walks, canoe trips and citizen science activities. These have taken place in all sizes of green spaces, from community pocket gardens to school grounds and parks.

Events have included BioBlitz’s, the creation of pollinator highways and green roofs, soup-offs and food growing, butterfly and invertebrate workshops, garden fetes, art installations, gardening workshops, wildlife walks, canoe trips and bike rides. 

We have also supported community groups and green groups through events and training opportunities to link together with schools and young people in their community to deliver conservation actions.

For more information on what you can do in your local green space or garden, download our community pack and species ID sheet. 

To keep up to date see our events listing page as well as our Glasgow Facebook page, or follow us on Twitter– we’re @RSPBGlasgow and we’ll be using the hashtag  #GlasgowWildFest

We are still looking for more people to be involved in their local area and run events. Whether it is opening up your garden, running a guided walk or simply organising a litter pick in your local park, please get in touch at gnahg@rspb.org.uk
