Pay it Forth

Objective 3
In Progress
'Pay it Forth' is a giving scheme which gives people - visiting and living in the area - the chance to donate to help look after historic heritage, nature and wildlife in the Inner Forth. 

Small contributions collected around the Inner Forth, added together, can make a genuine difference.

It's a way for those who enjoy the landscape to put something back into protecting, enhancing and celebrating what makes it so special!

  • Woodland enhancement, meadow creation, wetland scrape creation and tree planting at Rannoch Park (Grangemouth, Falkirk) and Glendevon Drive (Raploch, Stirling).

The donations collected through Pay it Forth complement funding received from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Falkirk Council and Stirling Council - and other funder - and are integral to making these heritage improvements possible.
