Airport workers clean up
Glasgow Airport staff teamed up with the West Dunbartonshire Ranger Service to carry out a clean-up operation at a nearby local nature reserve. The reserve is popular with bird watchers, cyclists and walkers, and is home to a range of butterfly and bird species such as hawk dragonflies, cormorants, grey herons and oystercatchers, as well as deer.
The team cleared away willow trees and remove unwanted shrubs at The Saltings, a nature reserve under the Erskine Bridge at Old Kilpatrick. In large numbers the willow trees can be damaging to the ecosystem because they drain moisture from the earth and limit the growth of other trees and plants. The team helped remove more than 40 willow trees from the nature reserve.
Derek Provan, Customer Services Director at Glasgow Airport, said: ‘We had a great time helping out at the Saltings nature reserve. As a local employer, we were delighted to take part in a worthwhile community project. From our perspective, the day was a great team-building exercise and I would strongly recommend other local businesses support the work of the Ranger Service. It was extremely hard work but great fun at the same time.’
