Thanks to funding from The Scottish Government and The Greggs Foundation, the Central Scotland Green Network Trust are supporting Buglife to create 25 pollinator hubs at various points along the John Muir Way. This funding will allow Buglife Scotland the opportunity to expand and bolster the work already being undertaken to create the first urban B-lines in Scotland, The John Muir Pollinator Way.

Buglife Scotland is now busy searching for sites that can be transformed or enhanced for the benefit of pollinators. By creating these pollinator hotspots, the project will be giving our wild pollinators a much needed helping hand and creating new habitats for other wildlife. Local communities and schools will also have the opportunity to connect with their local natural environment by getting involved, where possible, with the creation and enhancement of these sites and being able to explore and look for the wildlife that takes up residence in these areas.

Alasdair Lemon, Buglife Scotland Conservation Officer said “We are really excited to be able to continue working on our John Muir Pollinator Way project, Scotland’s first urban B-Line. It is fantastic that both the Scottish Government and Greggs Foundation have provided funding for this project, so that Buglife, CSGNT and partners are able to create and enhance grassland meadows for local communities to enjoy and most importantly to help our pollinators when they need it most.”
