The Scottish Wildlife Trust’s local initiative, Cumbernauld Living Landscape, is set to host Go Wild in Cumbernauld Glen on June 8, in a bit to promote “great habitats, healthy living and healthy communities within Cumbernauld”.

The free event will be held at the Glen Mile Mountain Bike Trail, Cumbernauld Glen Wildlife Reserve, on the June 8 from noon to 4pm.

Create an explosion of wildflowers around Cumbernauld with a seed bomb kit, guess the habitat in “magical feely boxes” if you are brave enough or make a badge of your favourite wild animal.

Contribute a mile for the “Cycle to the Moon Challenge” with a guided cycle tour of the Glen Mile trail.

Cumbernauld’s local charity I Am Bikes will be providing a number of bikes for people to try out the trail, as well as advice on how to care for you bike and places to go in Cumbernauld.

A guided wildlife walk around the reserve will also be provided by the Scottish Wildlife Trust and Friends of Cumbernauld Glen.

The event is for all ages and activities are free, refreshments are available for a small charge. Parking is available at the allotments beside Cumbernauld House. Please wear a helmet for your own safety when cycling. There’s more on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CumbernauldLivingLandscape.
