Princes Trust groups participating in the Team programme have taken part in volunteering activities around the Park including path building, invasive species control and participating in the Marine Conservation Society’s Beachwatch event. Younger adult group 18-24yr olds.
The Park has run a number of successful Branching Out programmes since 2010. Working in partnership with the Forestry Commission this innovative development is for adults who use mental health services. Participants take part in a variety of conservation and artistic activities over 12 weeks and at the end of the programme receive certificates of completion, tool use and can also achieve the John Muir Award.
