Environmental Based Activities

Whether as part of a John Muir Award course or completed in their own right we think it’s important for young people to gain a sense of how they interact with the natural world.

We offer a range of tasks that help young people both appreciate their place in the world and help to make a difference.  Often conservation tasks can be built into the range of other activities that groups take part in.  Conservation work is often done in liaison local partner groups creating links with the community.


Examples of conservation based activities are:

  • Creation of a wildlife garden area
  • Planting oak trees in local farmland
  • Working with the National Park to address footpath erosion
  • Working with the National Trust to remove invasive plant species
  • Litter clearance from rivers using canoes as transport

Environmentally based activities can be used to support groups where they are completing the John Muir Award and are ideally suited to support work done at Schools where they take part in the Forest Schools or Eco schools schemes.
