Grant Application Success
In September 2008 Paisley Natural History Society received a grant for £3000 from the Renfrewshire Environmental Trust (RET).
RET is a local charity which distributes funds through Landfill Tax with the purpose of environmentally enriching the community.
The aim of this grant is to creat high quality nesting and foraging habitat for Lesser Whitethroat. This bird (which is used as our logo) is a Local Biodiversity Action Plan species due to its extremely localised breeding distribution and the maintenance of this rare habitat is regulated under the Local Biodiversity Scrub Habitat Action Plan.
The PNHS has a leading role in the Scrub Enhancement project which will run from 2008 to 2018 and our members will be involved in the project throughout this period.
