This year, there are over 30 events running from September 1 - 30, and spread out at venues throughout the city. Each weekend will see the focus switch to a different part of Glasgow, highlighting both well-known and hidden greenspaces within those areas.

The festival will launch with a ‘wild day out’ in Glasgow Botanic Gardens on September 2, which will be the largest recording event there in 20 years. Citizen scientists of all ages and experience are encouraged to come along and take part in what will be a whole day of events and activities.

Other highlights for the festival this year include the grand opening of a newly developed garden and community hub by Friends of Springburn Park (Sept 23) and a picnic concert at the Hidden Gardens with the accompaniment of live chamber music (Sept 16).

Artwork for this year’s leaflet is an ink and water colour sketch by artist Stuart Hatt. Stuart has produced an incredibly detailed drawing, with scientifically accurate depictions of both iconic Scottish species, and wildlife you’ll see within Glasgow itself.

Glasgow Wildfest is part of Giving Nature a Home in Glasgow, an RSPB Scotland initiative which aims to re-connect people with Glasgow’s urban green spaces. It’s a collaborative effort between RSPB Scotland, Glasgow City Council, community groups, gardens and other organisations, encouraging everyone to explore Glasgow’s green spaces and create more homes for nature.

More information about Glasgow Wildfest events can be found at www.glasgowwildfest.org. Leaflets can be picked up from the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Musuem and Glasgow Botanics.
