Mugdock Country Park

Stirlingshire 23rd July 2023
led by
Matt Harding

This meeting will explore the varied flora of Mugdock Country Park and its surroundings, with an emphasis on learning, and we would particularly welcome anyone who has not been on a BSBI field meeting before. With a wide range of habitats present, including woodland, grassland, heathland, marshes and lochs, there should be many interesting plants to encounter, hopefully including species such as Platanthera chlorantha (Greater Butterfly-orchid) and Nuphar pumila (Least Water-lily). The Park has a good footpath network and excellent facilities, including cafes, toilets and even a garden centre for the horticulturally inclined. The Park is also accessible by public transport from Glasgow Queen Street (train then bus). Places are limited, so booking is essential.
