Our mission – to provide everyone in Edinburgh and the Lothians with access to quality greenspaces, which can help to improve their health & wellbeing

Since 1991 we have been working to improve greenspaces for the benefit of people through practical environmental and educational projects in partnership with local communities and health-focused initiatives as a way to support more people getting outdoors. Our projects are designed to benefit people, wildlife, landscape and heritage and to help connect people with their natural environment.

By providing a comprehensive portfolio of environmental project development, management and fundraising services, we help ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy their natural environment.


We had a great afternoon at Goodtrees Neighbourhood Centre promoting our Out & About project at @NSPCC_Scotland 's #AllofUs event. Good to meet local families and organisations. @Goodtreesnc1 @CircleScot @OPFS @SafeFamiliesUK @ChangeworksUK @womensaid

We are learning how to keep ourselves safe at the fire and we enjoyed eating toasted marshmallows.

We'll be at @The_RNAS spring show next week, if you're going, why not pop along and talk to the friendly team about creating new woodland, managing your woodland, making the most of your timber, grants available or getting started with biomass?

Portobello on the lookout for waxwings instead found a large flock of one of my favourite birds,noisy argumentative, surprisingly colourful starlings. Bossing the beach as usual. Love the 1st one facing in to the gale! @EdinburghNats @talkporty @RSPBEdinburghLG @EdinWildlife

We cut a third of our hedges each year to help the birds. Managed to cut some from tracks this month. Only 9 days left to do the rest of this year's third, not going to be dry enough by the look of it. It will complicate things next year. @NFFNUK

Final few Figgate shots. Robin with attitude, Moorhen hiding up a tree from the otter & blurry water rail...reckon it is part roadrunner the way it hurtles through the reeds at a rate of knots. Good views though. @EdinburghNats @RSPBEdinburghLG @RSPBScotland @EdinWildlife
