Woodland Survival Skills - 24th July 2017

Our enthusiastic group of Wildlifewatch members, plus visitors to Callander Summerfest, had a great time on our "Woodland Survival Skills" adventure. We enjoyed four hours of outdoors fun and learning, including foraging for wild plants and traditional herbal remedies, natural navigation and shelter building, before returning to base for an exciting fire workshop!

Visit to Jupiter! -13th July 2017

Our Wildlifewatch Summer Programme participants enjoyed an adventurous day of discovery and exploration at Jupiter Urban Wildlife Centre. Ranger Claire was brilliant, and while our young people really enjoyed the games and challenges, they absolutely LOVED pond dipping for aquatic wildlife and gave the day 9.5 out of 10!

Summer Programme 2017

Our friendly group aims to provide opportunities for young people aged 10 and over to enjoy and learn about nature and to take positive action for their local environment. To find out more, telephone Jamie on 01877 330141, or email jamie@cyp.org.uk
