Migration Along the Kelvin
Time & Location
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.
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.
