Do you love the great outdoors and want to support the environment?
If so, and you are aged between 11 and 16 years old, then have you considered becoming a Young Ranger? We are fortunate to have two National Parks on our doorstep, the Yorkshire Dales and the North Yorkshire Moors. Both organisations run a Young Ranger programme to enable students to take part in outdoor activities, such as tree planting, wildlife monitoring and seal watching, as well as attending a residential and gaining a recognised award! The volunteering is also recognised by the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
You can also find out more by reading the feature about our students Cassius and Brian who are both young rangers.
