Caithness Countryside Volunteers

3 June 04
Dune Stabilisation Work at Dunnet Bay
Warm and sunny weather conditions at Dunnet Bay last Sunday created a desert like image and working conditions for the Caithness Countryside Volunteers.

Working in a large 'blow-out' in the middle of the Dunnet Bay dune system, the volunteers planted herring-bone rows of marram grass between brash fencing in attempts help stabilise the system.

The Caithness Countryside Volunteers is run through The Highland Council Planning & Developments' Ranger Service and are constantly recruiting new members.

To join the volunteers or to receive further information, please contact Marina Finlayson, The Highland Councilís East Caithness Ranger on tel: 01955 607758 or e-mail marina.finlayson@highland.gov.uk
