Aliens In The Park

Join the Dams to Darnley Country Park Rangers on a hunt for plant and animal species that have found their way to the country park from other countries!

Aliens In The Park

About Aliens In The Park

Meet at the World Buffet restaurant car park, Corselet Road, Darnley G53 7RN.

There are quite a number of plant and animal species that have found their way to the country park, not from outer space but from other countries. Some of them can cause problems for our own native species. On this walk we will try to discover which ones are classed as naturalised or invasive.

Booking required
Wear appropriate clothing

Throughout the year the countryside rangers will be delivering a series of community events, activities and guided walks for all the family.

All the events are FREE, although booking is required for some. Please contact the countryside ranger service to book places on a forthcoming event.

Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Aliens In The Park are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
