Win-Win Work !

NTS Threave Nature Reserve recently welcomed a visit from the Duke of Edinburgh award team based at Abernethy Barcaple.
Abernethy is a group of four Christian Outdoor Adventure Centres. The partnership between Abernethy & NTS Threave provides outdoor activities and skills learning for the participants as well as enabling NTS to complete vital maintenance projects on the reserve. A win-win arrangement.

The team carried out post winter footpath maintenance work at Meikle Wood hill in time for the forthcoming busy Easter period. Many thanks from the Ranger Team for a good hard days work. Job done !!

Dave provides a Safety breifing and Tools Talk to the team prior to starting work.
