Dumfries and Galloway Giants
Kells Primary School Children with their Giant Head

Planting Day at the Otters Pool

Posted on May 9, 2012 by dumfries

On Monday 30th April children from Carsphairn, Dalry & Kells Primary Schools in the Glenkens along with members of the CatStrand Artexpresso carers group headed into the Galloway Forest Park to take part in The Giants in the Forest Project at the Otters Pool.

The groups worked with botanist Clair McFarlan to learn interesting facts about wildflowers before planting them in seedling form into three Giant heads which were then suspended high in the trees in the forest.

We hope that the groups will come back into the forest soon for storytelling & sculpture making activities
