This programme aimed to introduce black and minority ethnic community groups nationwide to some of Scotland’s special places for nature.
NatureScot developed the Community Introductions programme to help us to realise the vision of our Enjoying the outdoors policy.
In total, 170 participants took part over 11 sessions. Each session saw a new community group visit a different destination. The groups were introduced to their host organisation (sometimes a ranger service) to help support and encourage future visits to the outdoors.
Places visited included:
- National Nature Reserves
- National Parks
- regional parks
- country parks
- woodland parks
- other rural and coastal locations managed for people and nature
