Youth Rangers

Annual Youth Rangers programme

This is an annual programme for 14 to 17 year olds to take an opportunity to learn outdoor adventure and practical conservation skills. Youth rangers have a passion for the AONBs and Geopark landscape and heritage. The Youth Ranger programme is a great opportunity to experience work in the environmental conservation field.

The Programme usually runs for ten days across the AONBs and Geopark in the spring or summer.

The programme gives young people the opportunity to learn outdoor skills such as navigation and canoeing, whilst exploring the local landscape; learning about how it formed and its rich biodiversity and heritage. Most importantly of all, it’s an opportunity for young people to learn practical conservation skills and contribute to the environmental management of the area.

Some past Youth Rangers had these comments to make about the programme:

“It was very educational and fun and helped me learn how to help the environment more.”

“Great for CV, thanks”

“It was brilliant fun and I would definitely come back and recommend it!”
