North Inch Community Library | Free (donations welcome)
Explore Wildlife on our Doorstep at North Inch Community Library. This exhibition shows a wide range of wildlife that can be seen on the stretch of the River Tay from the North Inch Community Campus, up the back of the North Muirton area of Perth and on to the mouth of the River Almond. Only a short walk from the communities of Muirton and North Muirton, the River Tay offers a wonderful opportunity to see an amazing array of wildlife such as deer, beavers, otters and ospreys.

As part of the Upstream Battle campaign education activities, Keep Scotland Beautiful are asking young people across Tayside to research the ‘source to sea’ pathway of marine litter and explore how litter in their community could end up as marine litter in the sea. Following their investigations, participants will represent their thoughts through an artistic medium, such as sculptures, paintings, photographs, video or poetry. The more imaginative, the better!
