Are you aged 16-18 and interested in nature and the outdoors? Then the Belfast Hills Partnership Hills Explorer Programme could be right up your street! BHP are offering four FREE outdoor nature sessions for 16-18 year olds on Wednesdays in August 9.30am – 4pm.
Each week you will explore a different site in the Belfast Hills, discovering its wildlife, helping some of the species that call it home, and gaining a nationally recognised John Muir
Award in the process!
Activities will include practical conservation sessions, wildlife surveys, and some other general activities like hikes, bushcraft and arts/crafts. As well as giving participants the chance to explore nature, the Hills Explorer Programme is designed to improve the health and wellbeing of those taking part, with sessions based around the 5 Ways to Wellbeing.
To sign up, just download the form below (if you’re 17 or under, you need to make sure to get the parent/guardian permission section of the form signed too). Spaces are limited and allocated on a first come first served basis.
