Heading to Germany for a planning meeting with our German and Spanish partners for summer youth work camps, based in Scotland with the John Muir Trust. Exciting new venture!
We also visited Edinburgh Botanic Gardens in preparation for Belize Expedition in June with Wick High School pupils. They were introduced to various field work skills and heard about the background to the relationship between RBGE and Belize, and the importance of the conservation work they will do while there.
We had the pleasure of staying at the Aigas Field Centre while delivering workshops at the Highland Outdoor Learning Festival. Great location, great people.
A great week of weather and activities with Park Primary. They climbed, biked, made shelters, lit fires, perched on high wires, designed golf courses, orienteered and hads LOTS of fun.
Well done to all involved for making this a memorable week.
After a great course we headed to the Dolomites for some much needed r&r and recce for future trips……we did not bank on a simple trip/fall and helicopter rescue with badly broken ankle for Irene. This was followed by repatriation home, operation and a LONG recovery in plaster with no weightbearing. Bad end to an otherwise great venture in Italy.
Gold expedition went well. Good weather and a good bunch of girls completed their expedition arriving in Ullapool in record time. Now onto the final for them in August.
Italian course was a great success – teachers all entered ‘into the spirit’ of the course though the weather could
have been kinder
