Spring clean with the Junior Rangers

Junior Rangers from Pitlochry High School recently gave up their Saturday to help tidy up the pond in the Beatrix Potter Garden in Birnam. The pond had become chocked with weed, litter and mud which was restricting the look of the pond and the habitat on offer.

Using waterproofs and waiders the group made fast work of this dirty but rewarding task.

This task is just one of many which are run by local ranger services throughout the year working with many partners, which allows the pupils to get enough experience to gain both the Junior Ranger award and the John Muir award.

Next month we will back out working on the Birnam hill path.

The Junior Ranger scheme takes place in national parks across Europe. More information can be found on the attached link:- https://www.europarc.org/nature/young-people/junior-ranger-programme/
