Gartcosh Local Nature Reserve is an important site for protected species in the form of the great crested newt colony (the largest in Scotland) but also as a vital green lung and place for relaxation, contemplation and informal recreation.

Many of the animals and plants that can be found within the reserve are protected and are priorities in North Lanarkshire Councils' Local Biodiversity Action Plan, it is the aim of the council to manage the reserve carefully to protect them.
