The journey starts off by walking in the direction of a small stretch of land, created by a long forgotten Dundee to Newtyle railway called ‘The Miley’. For years it was unused and ignored by ‘Dundonians’ who used it as a mile-long rubbish tip. Now however, the Miley is an urban wildlife sanctuary of grasslands, plants and trees and a haven for wildlife cared for by the Scottish wildlife trust

Before you begin the walk, you’re asked to read a bureaucratic language of ‘pragmatic conservationism’. It is the official linguistics of practical ecology.
Needed to approve the semantics of everyday ecosystem. You see it’s the accepted symbol of our normal environment. A believed signs in this common location…
Or possibly it’s just a thoughtful notice in a shared place?
