Mourne Youth Rangers 09
Just tried to edit my desperately embarrassing, pseudo-erudite rants of teenage angst from years ago, after Maclimb reminded me of them today at the Mourne Youth Rangers! It obviously didn't work, so I might aswell make the best of this post. Well as some of you may know, the Mourne Heritage Trust run a Youth Ranger programme which basically allows young people to get involved with the conservation work that would normally be carried out by the rangers and countryside officers of the Mourne Heritage Trust. I've attended the programme the past 3 summers and have thoroughly enjoyed them, I'd recommend this type of volunteer conservation work to everyone. I have learnt a lot from my time with the Youth Rangers. I have gained so much knowledge of the flora and fauna of Mourne and it has made my hiking experiences so much more fulfilling. But most of all, I have gained a respect not only for those who work tirelessly to conserve Mourne, but for the area itself. I have learnt that Mourne, as vast and great as it may be, is a desperately delicate area and how our actions, no matter how significant, ultimately determine the future of this area. I plan to continue with my volunteer work in the Mourne Heritage Trust next year as an adult volunteer ranger. I doubt they'll be reading this but I'd like to thank Alan Whitcroft, Dave Farnan and Catherine and everyone else involved in making the Youth Ranger Programme possible.
