The Mendip Hills AONB Unit are looking for 15 adventurous young people who love the outdoors and who want to be part of a special group of Young Rangers.
They will get a taste for what it’s like to look after one of Britain’s most special places, designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Young Rangers will gain qualifications such as First Aid, navigation and the John Muir Conservation Award, along with learning about the special qualities of the Mendip Hills, taking part in outdoor adventure activities and gaining life skills.
The Young Rangers are aged 12-13 and sign up for two years to take part in a monthly activity. The Mendip Hills AONB Partnership subsidises the scheme so that places are offered at only £100 per Young Ranger for the two year programme. This covers all activities, equipment and the Young Ranger uniform.
