Central and Hindpool Junior Warden John Muir Award activities 2010

Various Central and Hindpool Junior Wardens activities which contributed to their John Muir Award in 2010. Funding to enable many of these activities was provided by "Our Green Space" -  a Cumbria-wide three-year partnership project running from Jan 2008 to Dec 2010 that has recently been extended until December 2011.The project is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund's 'Your Heritage' grant scheme.

We are looking forward to hosting similar activities for the Junior Wardens during 2011 as part of their efforts in achieving another John Muir Award. 
During 2011 the Junior Wardens, working with organisations such as Cumbria Wildlife Trust, Natural England and the National Trust,  will attend both theory based and practical sessions at various sites locally -  including the Green Heart Den, Roanhead and North Walney Nature Reserve.  These sessions will include a study of both plants and wildlife in the area.  The participants will undertake survey work with Cumbria Wildlife Trust.  The award will include clean ups and the preparation of a public display of the experiences as well as being involved in filming and editing a short film of their experiences.
