Over the past couple of years we have benefited from having an Education Ranger who has been available to provide engagement, activities and events across the Islands for both residents and visitors in a variety of ways; whether through guided nature walks, sessions within the nursery/school setting or for community groups or through the setting up of self-guided trails.
Sadly, as a result of Covid-19, our Education Ranger post became unworkable as we were unable to run nature-based events and activities in a cost-effective way for attendees or for the charity.
We had to make some tough decisions regarding our small team and have now re-deployed our Education Ranger within the Estate Ranger Team in an effort to avoid staff redundancies and ensure our team is well looked after in these difficult times. Consequently we will no longer be running Education Ranger led activities and events, as we have done in the past but check out some of the Citizen Science activities you can take part in below!
