2013 is the Year of Natural Scotland. To help you get out and explore the outstanding nature on your doorstep, West Lothian Council’s Ranger Service has created our biggest events programme so far. There’s something for everyone, from guided walks celebrating our wildlife and natural history to our increasingly popular activity weeks that get kids out playing and experiencing nature, whatever the weather’s doing.
