Volunteer Youth Ranger Programme Launched
We are pleased to launch our first ever Ring of Gullion Youth Ranger Programme. It’s an excellent opportunity for 14 to 17 year olds, from the Ring of Gullion and surrounding areas to gain experiences in environmental management and outdoor adventure. Working alongside Landscape Partnership and East Coast Adventure staff, participants will learn useful skills such as map reading, canoeing, first aid and practical conservation techniques. Throughout the course participants will have the opportunity to explore the Ring of Gullion with knowledgeable leaders and gain insight into the landscape and heritage of the Ring of Gullion. There will also be plenty of opportunity to carry out practical conservation to improve the local environment.
The Youth Ranger Programme is ideal for young people who are passionate about the environment, or those who would potentially like a career working in an environmental field. The Youth Ranger programme is free and running on Mondays and Tuesdays in August, however we do ask for £50 deposit to secure a place. The deposit is refunded at the end of the course, as long as participants attend at least 6 out of the 8 sessions. For full information and an application pack please visit our website and follow the links through the ‘Get Involved’ tab. The deadline for applications is Friday 17th July.
