Scone Palace Garden Fair – Nature Pagoda

May 31 @ 10:00 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm

Free

Want to win a hedgehog home? Going along to the Scone Palace Garden Fair? Visit us,

Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust and Tayside Biodiversity Partnership will be at our nature pagoda on 31st May and 1st June, 10am to 5pm.

Together we will be hosting a nature pagoda at Scone Palace Garden Fair. Perth & Kinross Countryside Trust will be raising awareness of its work on active travel, different trails etc. There will be a chance to learn about the large landscape-scale recovery project and how important garden level solutions are to create wildlife corridors.

Tayside Biodiversity Partnership will be “Making Way for Nature” with a focus on hedgehogs, swifts and pollinators.

Activities will include an Interactive question section for feedback on the Newburgh active travel route, matching birds to the bird box (for all ages). There will be a seed planting station to enable people to plant something which benefits wildlife. This will be a free giveaway

Join us and the Butterfly Conservation to learn about quick swaps for pollinators, looking at super foods such as caterpillar food plants which work in gardens.  The high and low nectar comparison planters will be used to demonstrate what can be done to help: low nectar examples might include what you can commonly put in your garden, but if we were all to swap to native plants, this would provide a high nectar source.

Organised by PK Climate Action, Tayside Biodiversity Partnership, Perth and Kinross Countryside Trust
