Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre

Its easy to forget you are in the heart of Grangemouth, when visiting Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre. A real wildlife haven, with ponds, meadows and woodlands. 

Jupiter is one of Scotland's finest examples of the reclamation of disused industrial land for wildlife and people. This urban nature oasis is right in the middle of industrial Grangemouth and is essentially a large wildlife garden, a haven for birds, butterflies and wildflowers. 

A fantastic place to explore and relax - come and picnic, walk or even use the BBQ. 

Take the kids and enjoy one of the various self-led activities including pond dipping, bug hunting, mini beast safaris and tree orienteering.  Or you could visit one of the wildlife gardens, which show how you can attract more birds, butterflies and a host of other animals to your own garden.”

There's also a year round programme of events on everything from bird box building, bushcraft and wild food. And for nature nuts aged between 8 and 12 there's the Jupiter Wildlife Watch Group which meets monthly.

Jupiter Wildlife Centre also caters for all groups, from school groups to birthday parties, regardless of age or ability, sessions can cover a variety of topics including orienteering, discovering what lives in the ponds and woods and environmental art. Just call Jupiter Wildlife Centre to find out costs and more details.
