Securing Our Future Youth Rangers

Youth Rangers


Youth Rangers helps young people aged 14-18 years living locally to gain experience through a programme of activities including - heritage interpretation, bushcraft, ecology, rural skills and hands on conservation work

They will see some of the most beautiful and interesting parts of our special landscape, face personal challenges, gain insight, inspiration and motivation, with support and training from dedicated staff and volunteers to help them along the way.

What will the project deliver?

The Youth Rangers programme will deliver two programmes which run for two years each.

Participants will have a better understanding of the landscape, habitats and heritage of the Forest, they will have developed countryside management skills and a broader interest in conservation and countryside issues and they will have gained transferable skills e.g. First Aid training.

What can I get involved in?

You can volunteer to help out at activities, or if you are a young person why not join the programme.
