DightyConnect enables volunteers to plan, design and implement human-scale projects linked to environmental and cultural aspects of the Dighty Burn. We believe local people have considerable knowledge about their environment and often have excellent ideas about what could enhance the Dighty Burn. We start with your passions, interests and ideas to enable you to deliver excellent quality projects within your local community.
Take part in Citizen Science with our other volunteers (or feel free to do so alone). We record wildlife along the Dighty Burn (and its tributaries) and include it in a national database (the NBN Atlas). We regularly carry out river invertebrate surveys to check for water quality; survey butterflies in the summer; take part in moth surveys; organise training days (including dragonfly and damselfly identification); help with dipper ringing and other bird surveys; carry out bat surveys and a multitude of other activities. We welcome anyone from complete beginners to seasoned professionals. All we ask is that you have a genuine desire to be outdoors, a keenness in wildlife and an interest in the Dighty Burn.
