Aberdeen’s Environmental News and Events Green Apple Award Work on a project to halve the Granite City’s carbon emissions has led to Aberdeen City Council being honoured as an International Green World Ambassador. citizens the chance to join the public and private sectors in identifying ways to make changes for the better.” This recognition comes as a result of the environmental success of the authority’s EU-funded MUSIC (Mitigation in Urban Areas: Solutions for Innovative Cities) Project, which won a Scottish Green Apple Environment Award this month. The long-term goal of the project is a sustainable city in 2050. Shorter-term benefits include: an Energy City educational game for primary 5-7 pupils; a sustainable living video for teenagers in education; an annual event promoting street life and low carbon transport; and this month pupils will start to monitor energy use at home. The council’s winning paper will be published in The Green Book, the world’s only annual work of reference on environmental best practice. It is distributed to environment professionals, universities and libraries around the world by The Green Organisation. The winning paper now goes forward for further judging and could be selected to represent the UK in the Brussels-led European Business Awards for the Environment. Councillor Barney Crockett said: “Aberdeen City Council is making good progress on tackling carbon emissions, through a range of initiatives and I am very pleased to see that being recognised at an international level. “The MUSIC project is a particularly interesting one because it has given The Green Apple Awards are one of the few environmental schemes in Britain that have official status to act as an automatic feeder scheme into the European campaign.

East Tullos Burn a Blooming Success More than 160,000 plants have come into bloom providing a splash of colour at the East Tullos Burn. Thousands of plants have injected colour and helped enhance biodiversity in the area after the burn re-opened to the public in May, following a £300,000 improvement programme. Councillor Angela Taylor, vice-convener of the Council’s Enterprise, Strategic Planning and Infrastructure Committee, said: “The East Tullos Burn restoration project has completely transformed the St. Fitticks Park area from a neglected, polluted wasteland to a beautiful oasis. “This is an outstanding example of what can be achieved through partnership working and by involving the community in making the best of their area. “£300,000 has been invested in this very worthwhile project, which has seen the creation of several new wetland areas and a larger pond at the upstream end of the site, paths and bridges being built to ensure the area can be enjoyed by all, whatever the weather; and more than 160,000 plants bedded in. “As they come into bloom it is immediately obvious that a huge difference has been made to St. Fitticks Park, and I am certain residents will be delighted.” In recent years the burn, which runs through the industrial estate and enters the park, had become polluted. The burn was also a hotspot for litter and fly-tipping in the past. The new design includes a meandering course for the burn as well as the creation of a pond and wetland areas.

As a result of the group’s involvement, the service is being well-used by residents with almost one tonne of recycling collected in the first week. Councillor Jean Morrison, Chair of Aberdeen City Council’s Zero Waste Sub-Committee said: “Aberdeen City Council is proactively working towards becoming a zero waste city as we move towards a situation where we recycle more than we throw away. The mixed recycling service will play a major role in that by making the recycling process easier for residents which in turn will lead to an increase in recycling rates.” Mixed recycling bins are due to be installed across the city over the next few years. For more information about the mixed recycling service, visit www. aberdeencity.gov.uk/wasteaware Choose reuse and pass it on! Visitors to a recent event in Torry have championed reuse, donating a total of 76 kilos of items which were passed on for use elsewhere. The ‘Pass It On Day’ was organised by the Recycling Team at Aberdeen City Council. The event gathered donations of unwanted items, including clothes, toys, and household items, that could be passed on for someone else to use. Recycling coordinator Martina Klubal said: "Every year in Scotland, many potentially reusable items, including textiles, furniture and electrical items are thrown away and end up in landfill. “We want to encourage people to pass on their unwanted items so they can be used again by someone else. Re-use is environmentally friendly and supports the local community by allowing people to get hold of items in good condition at little or no cost.” For more information about reuse options in Aberdeen, visit www.aberdeencity.gov. uk/wasteaware or call the Recycling Team on 08456 08 09 19. You can also contact the National Reuse Phoneline on 0800 0665 820 to arrange a free collection of any unwanted furniture or household items still in good condition.

Hazlehead Celebrates Green Flag Awards Hazlehead Primary School pupils are proudly flying their First Green Flag. The achievement demonstrates the commitment and hard work of the school to an extensive programme of environmental activities. Following an environmental review by the school Eco Committee a programme of activities were developed around three Eco School themes of litter, sustaining our world and school grounds. The approach has enabled pupils to develop an environmentally friendly attitude and approach to the world around them. Over a two year period the pupils actively participated in whole school litter picks at the school and in Hazlehead Park, raised money for The Budge Trust and enjoyed hearing how their efforts have helped those around the world. A Fair Trade Coffee morning was held and it was so successful there are plans to make the event even bigger next year! A partnership with the Friends of Hazlehead Charity has enabled many children to make presentations to local businesses to encourage involvement. This has helped with improvements and regeneration of Hazlehead Park. A particular favourite of the pupils is gardening and the school has grown their own apples which made a delicious sponge, beetroot which was used to make muffins and an abundance of vegetables to create a heart warming broth. Gardening is enjoyed so much that some of the pupils have been involved in planting trees and daffodils in the local community. The Green Flag Award is an international standard of excellence, assessed by the Keep Scotland Beautiful Eco Schools team. Striving towards a greener school Written by Sandra Sunny S4 Hazlehead Academy has recently been honoured with its fifth renewal of green flag status. It comes as a result of the initiatives taken by the pupils and staff of the school. For years the school has promoted an environmentally friendly attitude which has been integrated into the Curriculum for Excellence. Hazlehead Academy works closely with the Friends of Hazlehead Park to make sure that the school's grounds, surroundings and nearby suburban area is kept clean. This has been achieved by conducting several litter picks and planting saplings for the regeneration of the park. The school also has a very active EcoCommittee which regularly meet to discuss any issues and to produce possible solutions to counter them. Recently, they’ve written to many local supermarkets about the output of plastic carrier bags; and visited Grove Nursery Recycling Centre. Within the school, events such as the Earth Hour, Bike-ToSchool Week, Rag-Bag Collection, Battery Recycling and SwitchOff Fortnight are run in an effort to reduce negative impacts upon the environment and to raise awareness. All of this compliments the academy's eco code which is ‘Our Uniforms are Green for a Reason!' 87% of Local Authority schools in the Aberdeen are registered for the Eco Schools Programme, an international initiative designed to encourage wholeschool action for the environment. Eco Schools awards achieved by these schools include: 42 39 Bronze Silver 16 Green Flag Aberdeen City Local Authority Schools Recent EcoSchool Awards achievements!

'Marine Litter Watch’ has been launched by the European Environment Agency to support volunteers cleaning up beaches. Huge amounts of plastic and other debris are increasingly found in the sea, harming marine wildlife and potentially threatening human health. However, the type, movement and origins of rubbish ending up in the sea and on beaches are still not widely understood. The app allows users to record the amount of different types of litter that they find on the beach. The data will be collected in a single European data set, documenting the extent of the problem. The app is now available for Apple and Android devices, and there is also a web interface to support communities in setting-up and managing their events and data. To find out more go to www.eea. europa.eu/themes/coast_sea/ marine-litterwatch Fun at the first Environment Day Over 500 people came along to take part in a range of free family friendly activities for the Duthie Park Ranger Service’s first ‘Environment Day’. As well as the Ranger Service and the Butterfly Conservation Society, there was fun with Satrosphere and expert advice from the RHSA. Aberdeen and District Beekeepers Association and the Allotment Market Stall were on hand with information and the public had a chance to take a closer look at owls. Aberdeen Play Forum brought a variety of play equipment. Aberdeen City Council’s Duthie Park Ranger Service organised the event, which aimed to increase people’s awareness of the environment and would like to thank all who attended. Education in the Park Schools and nurseries from across the City and Shire have taken part in a range of educational activities with the Ranger Service at Duthie Park, based on the Curriculum for Excellence. School term activities included: making rainforests in bottles, planting seedlings, investigating what plants need to grow, examining the world of minibeasts and searching for underwater creatures in the wildlife pond. Several primary schools planted sunflower seeds which were then moved to the Community Garden by the Park Force volunteers. This created a mini field of sunflowers, producing a display for Britain in Bloom.

Schools Camera Trap Competition Over a dozen schools across North East Scotland recently turned detective to find out about the wildlife in and around their school grounds. Children from Aberdeen City, Aberdeenshire and Moray took part in a Citizen Science project using remote cameras, or camera traps/ trailcams, as they are widely known. The schools project is part of the ongoing work of the North East Scotland Biodiversity Partnership to gather information on some of the under-recorded species in the region. It helped to spread the benefits of outdoor learning and gave an opportunity for children to discover more about the animals that make their home in the areas around local schools. Partners in the project including; local Rangers Services, The Conservation Volunteers, National Trust for Scotland and representatives from the environmental education sector – all helped the children to get to grips with using the technology. The children then operated the cameras themselves and recorded the secret life of the animals in and around their schools. Using the images and video footage collected, each school submitted a compilation of highlights, telling the story of the wildlife in the area. The two winning entries were produced by Kittybrewster Primary School and Rothienorman Primary School. The pupils from Kittybrewster, with the help of their teacher, produced a video telling the story of the birds that live and feed within the grounds of their school. To view videos submitted for the competition and more camera trap footage from the North East Scotland Biodiversity Partnership and friends, view the North East Scotland Camera Trapping Facebook page www.facebook.com/northeastscotlandcamera trapping?ref=hl Summer Fun at Duthie Park It was a fun filled summer at Duthie Park, with the Ranger Service hosting a variety of children’s activities over the school holidays. The 8 to 12 years discovered underwater creatures, planted in the Education Glasshouse and developed their tracking skills. The popular sessions for age 7 and under, were booked up within three weeks. The children investigated the minibeasts of Duthie Park, met some ‘treemendous’ trees, built spectacular dens and created a selection of beautiful, natural crowns.

Aberdeen City Council Countryside Ranger Service, in partnership with the Saving Scotland’s Red Squirrel Project, was selected as finalist for a successful project to attract red squirrels back into parts of Aberdeen. Core Path Upgrades Work to improve and upgrade some of the core paths around Aberdeen is set to take place in coming months. Severely eroded paths on Kincorth Hill and Brimmond Hill are to be repaired. This erosion was caused by the heavy rainfall and storms over the last few years making some of the paths almost impassable. The paths will be repaired to a higher specification and drainage installed to reduce the risk of this scale of erosion occurring again and to climate change proof these paths. Work to improve the drainage and path networks in Hazlehead Park and woods is to be implemented over several years. One of the options being looked at is to create wetland areas or ponds as habitat features to help moderate the flow of water through the area at times of high rainfall. This will help reduce the flooding risks in the park and further down stream. Some of the waymarking along the Deeside Line is starting to show its age and will be replaced. Upgrading of the signage will include the increased use of the Deeside Way branding that is being rolled out along the length of the route in the City and Shire. As a part of this branding a new website has been set up at www.deesideway. org and will continue to be developed in the coming months. Funding has been made available for core path improvements from the Bus Lane Enforcement. The winners of the Awards will be announced in November 2014. Look out for an update in the next edition of Green Times. A project aiming to safeguard the native red squirrel from extinction in Scotland is calling on the people of Aberdeen for assistance in discovering new areas where these muchloved creatures are found.
