What we're looking for
Quarrymill Woodland Park is owned and maintained by the Gannochy Trust. The Trust kindly fund our education work in the woodland and we work with local primary and nursery schools classes. The aim of the project is to provide children with active, experiential learning opportunities in the natural environment. We want to show them how amazing nature is, particularly on their doorstep, and help them develop a sense of ownership for Quarrymill woodland. We offer a range of activities from bird identification and mini-beast 'hunting', to shelter building and survival skills. We work closely with teachers and tailor each day of learning to the needs of the class. We need committed, enthusiastic volunteers who are interested in encouraging the next generation to connect with nature. Volunteers are vital to the smooth delivery of a successful day's learning.
