Malls Mire is an attractive area of mixed woodland and wetland habitat with a good path network covering 8.3 hectares, situated between Toryglen and Rutherglen. It was designated an L-SINC (Local Site of Importance for Nature Conservation) in 1992, in recognition of its regional importance as a wetland site. It was the first community woodland in Glasgow and became a Local Nature Reserve in 2015. There are regular sightings of deer, foxes, kestrels and sparrowhawks, and the wildflower meadows attract a variety of butterflies and other pollinators.
Urban Roots has been involved in managing the woods since 2009 with the aim of making it a better place for wildlife and a better place for people. We run weekly volunteer sessions, carry out improvements such as installing access paths, biodiversity work and deliver a broad programme of activities for local children and adults.
