Working with Arran’s community

First and foremost, we are a community group. We partner with residents, local businesses and visitors to the island to raise awareness of marine conservation for the benefit of all who use and rely on the Clyde. We work with many local and Scottish partners, complementing each others work.

For example we have recently collaborated with Galloway Foods to deliver a workshop on seaweed and coastal plants foraging, with the Arran NTS Ranger Service to deliver our joint programme of outdoor learning events, with Invisible Dust to deliver film-making MPA “Something of the Sea” workshops, with the Arran Theatre and Arts Trust and Arran TAP for their EcoMusic Beach Clean and other activities.

We deliver talks and run indoor and outdoor events at the Octopus Centre, around Arran and occasionally in the North Ayrshire and Glasgow areas.

Have a look at all our activities and hires to explore Arran’s sea life (including beach scrambles, marine workshops, beach cleans, film evenings, guest speakers and marine themed craft workshops). We can also point you to other coastal and marine related activities at our Marine Info Point.
