Love Your Canal

Love Your Canal

Our ‘Love Your Canal’ waterway adoption project on Glasgow’s historic Forth & Clyde Canal encourages volunteers to learn new skills, meet new people and roll up their sleeves to make a difference!

Based in Maryhill, Love Your Canal volunteers:

  • have fun
  • make new friends
  • learn practical skills
  • gain certificates
  • safeguard waterways heritage
  • enhance canal biodiversity
  • make a real difference to their local environment

Volunteers need no previous experience or specialist skills and can gain new skills through a range of workshops which include learning about wild plants and wildlife.

You can earn:

  • John Muir Discovery Award
  • Heritage Hero Award
  • Certificates in areas such as water safety and lime mortaring
