The work was carried out through a mixture of work by CLEAR volunteers and contractors ebgaged byFife Council. The land was cleared and a wetland path was created with plants to encourage wildlife. Benches and interpretation panels have been installed and saplings, shrubs and fruit trees have been planted. As the area is home to bats, we’ve also installed some bird and bat boxes.
is the last remaining piece of woodland here in Buckhaven. It is all that remains of the old Muiredge plantation on the edge of our town. Renamed after the last gamekeeper, it has been eroded by mining, railway tracks, modern roads and pedestrians from the expanding housing schemes and shortly with pupils from the new Levenmouth Academy. Now encroached on three sides, CLEAR is regenerating what remains.
An array of semi-mature native trees, thousands of tree saplings, native flower and plant bulbs have recently been planted. Some vandalims has occurred but further planting and maintenance work is planned ona regular basis
