About the Event

There’s a lot of wildlife in Glasgow – some of it obvious, some hidden, some that lives here all the time, and some that migrates – sometimes many thousands of mile. Come and join Refuweegee, RSPB Scotland and the UNESCO Chair team on a short, easy and safe wildlife walk along the River Kelvin. It’s for absolutely everyone - the only aim being to have a relaxing few hours enjoying the wild plants and animals around us. Our hosts will be taking you on a tour around the West End of Glasgow, talking about bird migration and refugees in Glasgow. 

Please register here to secure your free place. 

The meeting point is the new Refuweegee space on Byres Road. Doors open at 5:30 for coffee, tea and biscuits. At 6pm there will be an introductory presentation/discussion, followed by a guided circular walk of around 1.5 hours. We should be back in the shop at 8pm, when you will again have the opportunity to mingle and to have a tea/coffee and a biscuit.

The weather in Scotland can be unpredictable, so please make sure you bring suitable footwear and waterproofs. We also recommend bringing a pair of binoculars, although that is not mandatory. This event is OPEN TO ALL, including children.
