Ranger service

Meet Alison – RSPB Community Ranger

Hello, I am Alison Greggans, and I work for the RSPB. My post is part funded by the Cairngorm National Park Authority. I work full time in the spring and summer and part time in the winter. You will find me in Nethy Bridge, Boat of Garten or Abernethy NNR.

The Ranger will be in Nethy:

on Friday mornings at the Visitor Centre 9.30 to 11am. Why not drop in for a chat, say hello and catch up on all the wildlife goings on or information about local and park wide Ranger events

On other days I’ll be out and about, so look out for me on your forest or riverside walks.
