Applications for the 2019 programme are open until 5pm on 28th June 2019.
Are you aged between 14 and 17? Would you like the opportunity to learn outdoor adventure and practical conservation skills? Do you have a passion for the Ring of Gullion and the wider environment? Perhaps you would like to work in the environmental conservation field? Then this could be the opportunity for you.
The Ring of Gullion Landscape Partnership is looking for 14 to 17 year olds to participate in their Youth Ranger programme running from 16th July to 25th July 2019 (excluding the weekend). The programme will give you the opportunity to learn outdoor skills such as navigation, zombie apocalypse survival skills and canoeing, whilst exploring the Ring of Gullion; learning about how it formed and its rich biodiversity and heritage. You will have the opportunity to achieve an Explorer-level John Muir Award. Most importantly of all, its an opportunity for you to learn practical conservation skills and contribute to the environmental management of the area.
Some of last year’s Youth Rangers had these comments to make about the programme:
“It was very educational and fun and helped me learn how to help the environment more.”
“Great for CV, thanks”
“It was brilliant fun and I would definitely come back and recommend it!”
If this sounds like something for you, please check out the application pack below.
Cost: £100 – to be paid upon acceptance to the programme.
The programme is part funded by the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Heritage Lottery Fund and Newry, Mourne & Down District Council.
We look forward to hearing from you.
