Crieff High were recently out with Alan and Jeannie participating in Conservation activities to achieve their John Muir Discovery award. Here is them describing their award.
12 young people from S4 Crieff High School took part in the John Muir Award and we did a variety of activates like team building, rock climbing and conservation work.
They provided the following statement to Alan for use on this Blog.
“On the first day we went up the Knock to complete team building exercises like walking with ski’s and bat and moth.
We also went orienteering up and around the knock. We then went to the bush craft area and had a campfire in the fire pit, we ate marshmallows and sausages.
On the Wednesday we went climbing and abseiling at Bennybeg which was very fun but it started to rain halfway through the day which made it very hard to abseil on the slippery rocks.
Thursday we went to Loch Monzievaird. We walked all the way around the Loch looking at different types of stuff like different types of trees and trees that beavers chewed on. We also looked at nature’s pallet.
On Friday we did Conservation work on the Knock and we took out beach trees from the ground because it is not a native tree and when it grows it will block out the sun and the native plants will not grow, we did the conservation in different places up the Knock.”
