Naturally Native Young Rangers are a group of young people aged 14 – 18 who want to be part of the recovery of Britain’s fastest declining mammal, the water vole, and secure its future here in the North East.

Each month, we will undertake exciting practical at various locations to help the water vole’s recovery, and will include activities such as scrub clearance, coppicing, wetland management, removing invasive species, wildlife surveys, constructing and installing wildlife monitoring equipment, and much much more!

The sessions are inclusive to all and encourage team working and problem solving. Perfect if you love nature or being outdoors and a great way to achieve your Duke of Edinburgh or John Muir Awards!


What’s happening in January?!

As this will be our first gathering, we’ll be meeting at the wonderful Margrove Hertiage Centre, and we’ll spend the session learning how to use hand tools properly and safely, and we’ll spend plenty of time in the woods putting our new skills and knowledge into action. There will also be plenty of opportunity to chat over hot drinks and biscuits to get to know one-another.

Booking is essential. Please bring a packed lunch, drink and clothes suitable for working outdoors.

This event is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, and is part of the Naturally Native Project.
