A small group of Trinity students are currently working with the Tees Valley Wildlife Trust group who are delivering a John Muir award course. Students will visit local woodland areas and learn about basic survival skills (den building, fire lighting, etc) and about conservation of our woodland and wildlife.
The four week course gives students an opportunity to achieve the John Muir Award by discovering a wild place, exploring its wildness, conserving it and sharing their experiences.
The John Muir Award is an environmental award scheme and it supports people to connect with, enjoy and care for nature, landscape, and the natural environment – wild places. The Award is achieved using a structured and adaptable scheme and its name comes from John Muir, the Scots-born conservation pioneer known as ‘the founding father of National Parks’.
