About Lower Nithsdale Red Squirrel Group

lower nithsdale red squirrel group logo woodfuel coop

The Lower Nithsdale Red Squirrel Group (LNRSG) was formed in 2018. Their remit area takes in the Lower Nith Valley from Auldgirth to the sea and includes the town of Dumfries.

Red squirrels are still doing well in this area. But they are coming under increasing threat from non-native grey squirrels that are moving into Dumfries town and the surrounding countryside and bringing with them the deadly squirrelpox virus.

The LNRSG aims to remove grey squirrels, reduce the threat of the squirrelpox virus and promote the conservation and enjoyment of our native red squirrels in the town and throughout the Lower Nith Valley.

How we’re helping

We’re one of a number of local sponsors of LNRSG’s 2021 calendar. You can buy the calendar in our Dumfries shop. The beautiful calendars feature stunning photos of red squirrels in their natural habitat and cost just £5 each. All money raised goes to the LNRSG.

We’ve also spent time sourcing the best quality ingredients for a specialist red squirrel food – our very popular Red Squirrel Picnic. This can be bought in store or as an add-on to your pallet. It’s packed full of hazelnuts, monkey nuts, and sunflower seeds, with no cheap fillers.

It’s so good, we’ve even had squirrels themselves visit us. A wild red squirrel popped in one morning and happily explored our shop before heading back to the woodland next door!
