RSPB Scotland are running the Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival celebrating Glasgow’s green spaces from Saturday 12 May until Sunday 3 June. In partnership with Glasgow City Council, partners, organisations and community gardens right across the city, to celebrate Glasgow Garden Festivals 30th Anniversary of bringing the festival to green spaces across the city and raising awareness of the wildlife on your doorstep.

The programme is taking shape and a wide range of community groups are involved, representing Parks and green spaces all over the city. Many of these events are being run by different groups and community gardens, which are working in partnership with RSPB Scotland to bring you the Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival at locations across the city.

If you would like to be involved all you need to do is to register your event at the link below and send it to them by the 2 April so your activity can be featured in the Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival 2018 programme.

Go to then click on the Glasgow Wildlife Garden Festival link on the left hand side of the page to find out more information and to access the registration form.

The organisers are hoping to group activities by region, so that visitors can access a number of events in their local area. The weekend dates for each region are: East 12-13 May; West 19-20 May; South 26-27 May; North 2-3 June. You are welcome to include your activity in one of these areas on those dates.

Each year there are over 40 groups involved running a variety of events from art installations, wildlife themed walks, canoe trips and citizen science activities in all sizes of green spaces from community pocket gardens, stalled spaces, back courts, church yards, schools grounds and parks.

There will be a launch event of the Let Glasgow Flourish exhibition, in the center hall of Kelvingrove Museum on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22  April. There will be stalls and/activities inside and outside the museum.
