Summary

Join the Fens Youth Rangers to learn practical conservation skills for free.

Detailed description

Youth Rangers is a group for secondary-aged young people (11-17 years) keen to make a positive difference to their local environment. We meet throughout the year at various Cambridgeshire nature reserves and would love to welcome you to our group.


Join us for another fantastic session of learning real, practical conservation skills, learning from industry professionals and making a positive impact for wildlife. You do not need any experience to attend.


This month we're at Upwood Meadows. Designated a National Nature Reserve for its floristic diversity, Upwood is awash with life. The greatest display is in Bentley meadow where medieval ridge-and-furrow and the many ant hills provide differing microhabitats for plants and invertebrates. Here plants including cowslip, green-winged orchid, saw-wort, dropwort, sulphur clover and dyer's greenweed provide summer-long colour and nectar sources for bees and butterflies. Under the guidance of Communities and Education Officers from the Wildlife Trust, you'll be learning how to perform a plant survey, using quadrats, keys and guide books to identify wildflowers and collecting valuable data that will inform conservation plans at the site.


Please note:

Bookings are not confirmed until we have received your completed paperwork and consent form (for each child).


Additional information 

  • There are no toilet facilities available for this session.
  • These sessions are designed for participants to attend independently. We try to be as inclusive as possible, but this session may not suit every young person, and we cannot provide 1:1 support.
  • Parents/guardians will be asked to fill out a consent form to include relevant issues to help us ensure participants get the most out of the session.


On booking you will receive an email with further guidance but if you have any more questions please do get in touch.

About Wildlife Trust BCN Great Fen

The Great Fen is a vast fenland landscape between Peterborough and Huntingdon, home to two National Nature Reserves - Holme Fen and Woodwalton Fen, protected for their unique habitat and the varied wildlife they support. The area is currently benefiting from one of the largest restoration projects of its type in Europe and the landscape is being restored and transformed for the benefit both of wildlife and of people. We offer a variety of volunteering opportunities and events for people to get closer to nature and make a positive impact on the environment.
