What we do
The group aims to conserve and enhance the Braid Hills for the benefit of people and wildlife and to promote its use as a public resource.
We work to:
Promote and encourage more people to use the hill and take an interest in its protection
Safeguard and improve the existing plant and animal life and take steps to increase the biodiversity of the hill
Involve users of the hill and local people in planning, decision-making and aspects of management affecting the hill
Raise funds and receive contributions as necessary to finance the work associated with the above

The group started in 2012. We are still quite a small group with limited funds and resources, but we aim to make small, gradual improvements to the hill, working with local people who use the hill and with the City of Edinburgh Council.
