Flanders Moss

Last Monday we went to Flanders Moss to have a look at the huge peat bog. We learnt about the ice age and how the area used to be under the sea (there were whale bones found nearby!). We searched for lizards and moths and snakes and were very interested in the dams that had been made to stop all the water draining out. 

It was a good trip, and we didn't even loose any of the Beavers in the swamp.   

DIY Scouts

This month the Scouts have been trying their hand at some woodwork projects as part of their DIY activity badge. With some help from the leaders with their wealth of experience and some proper equipment, we saw a fantastic range of things from tables to tanks appear before our very eyes. Fantastic effort!

Walk number 2

Last weekend we went on walk number two of the summer. It was a lovely sunny day and we walked all the way from Strathblane to Dumgoyne. We also found a few geocaches on the way.
