YOUNGSTERS living in and around the Churnet Valley are being given the chance to become youth rangers as part of a weekly project aimed at improving the wildlife and landscapes in the area.
Churnet Youth, part of the Churnet Valley Living Landscapes Project (CVLLP), is offering young people aged 16-21 the chance to take part in a range of exciting conservation tasks, taking place every Friday.
Martin Evans, youth officer at CVLLP said: "Whether young people want to gain experience for future careers, want to meet new people or try new activities outdoors, this group will be perfect for them."
A level two qualification in Environmental Conservation is also available as part of the project.
Transport to the various activity sites is provided from Leek.
Further details on all activities can be found at www.churnet-valley.org.uk.
