It’s looking like a busy summer in Glen Nevis and on Ben Nevis.

And the Nevis Landscape Partnership seasonal ranger team has been working hard to reduce the impact of large numbers of visitors to the area and keeping the place in as good condition as possible.

A number of volunteer events are planned during August and September for anyone wishing to help. There will be two events per month, one on a weekday and one on a weekend, helping with essential tasks including path maintenance and bracken bashing in the Future Forests tree planting enclosures.

There will also be some Monday morning litter picks on the footpaths in the lower glen on alternate Mondays in August.

Work parties will be led by Rory Stewart, Volunteer Co-ordinator of Nevis Landscape Partnership and Friends of Nevis and/or some of the Nevis Landscape Partnership Seasonal Ranger team.

If you are interested in taking part, visit www.friendsofnevis.co.uk/events.html or https://www.nevislandscape.co.uk/local/events/ the events page to sign up or register as a volunteer.

There will still be some precautionary Covid arrangements in place, including online sign-up for events, pre-event screening questions, meeting at or near the work sites to avoid meeting indoors and appropriate personal hygiene and distancing guidance during work parties.
