We kicked off ‘Greener Greenock’ with pupils from St Patrick’s Primary at the Carts Burn yesterday. Pupils took the train from Drumfochar to Whinhill to spend a morning at the burn before heading back to school for an afternoon of invertebrate ID and river health scoring. The burn had a great brown trout population, healthy fly life and is now looking even better thanks to the pupils’ litter-picking efforts! Thanks to the ScotRail Foundation and the Craignish Trust for supporting the project and to Inverclyde Council for collecting the bagged litter. Pupils from King’s Oak, All Saints and Aileymill Primaries will also be participating in the project over the next few weeks.
