Langholm Initiative – Creating the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve

About Langholm Initiative – Creating the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve

The community of Langholm made the headlines in 2021 with its historic land buy out from Buccleuch Estates. A huge fundraising campaign spearheaded by a small community in Dumfries and Galloway raised £3.8m in just 6 months to bring 5,200 acres of land into community ownership. It’s now a place where we’re setting out a bold vision to create the Tarras Valley Nature Reserve which will help tackle climate change and biodiversity loss, restore nature at a huge scale and support community regeneration. An inspiring initiative that's pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved for people and planet.
