We work with all our local schools on Arran in delivering outdoor education, nature conservation sessions, tree planting and other learning activities to inspire young folk to get outdoors.  Our leaders are John Muir and Woodland learning (OWL) qualified to provide the very best structured, educational, practical and fun school events. We have delivered events for numerous mainland schools from North Ayrshire and Edinburgh.

As committed environmentalists we aim to tread kindly on the planet in all our community work and engage with nature in a way that supports life on earth, including people.  Offering ecology surveying services of your land is another way we can achieve our goals to enhance biodiverisity, grow more foods and plants and secure income.  The more work we undertake the more young people we can train and support into work.  We hope to be able to apply ecological surveying to our project services portfolio in 2021.
