We’ve been busy in recent weeks and days gathering materials for use in the Garnock catchment to deliver green engineering projects for Garnock Connections. Today we delivered two sites on the Dusk Water.
The initiative is coordinated by the Garnock Connections Landscape Partnership, which is made up of RSPB Scotland (lead partner), North Ayrshire Council, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA), NatureScot, and the Scottish Wildlife Trust, with Historic Environment Scotland (HES) acting as an advisory body.
Garnock Connections has been supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
The aim of the project isn’t to solve all the problems that we encounter. The aim is to demonstrate a variety of techniques that can be used to reduce erosion and diffuse pollution. And through doing so improve water quality which will benefit fish and all other aquatic organisms. Water quality and habitat are fundamental to riverine ecology and work such as this will benefit all native species.

We would like to thank Newhouse Farm for allowing us to deliver this valuable work on their ground.
