The Friends of Beecraigs

The Friends of Beecraigs group aims to enable and encourage the local community to take an interest in the Park. The group focus on the upkeep, enjoyment and protection of the Park, by carrying out tasks such as vegetation control, tree management and maintenance of waymarked and mountain bike routes.  

Current opportunities

For those looking to carry out practical work in the Park, there are monthly opportunities to carry out all kinds of maintenance work with the Friends group. There is also a mountain-bike sub group for those interested in helping with the upkeep of the mountain bike trails.Friends Beecraigs 2

You may prefer to come to the Park and carry out tasks on your own or with a friend - if this is something you would be interested in then arrangements can also be made with the Ranger Service to do so.

If you would like to contribute to your local Country Park by volunteering, please contact the Ranger Service at Beecraigs Visitor Centre, or email Bronwen.winter@westlothian.gov.uk. No experience necessary, just plenty of enthusiasm and keen interest in the outdoors!
