High Life Highland’s Countryside Rangers run many events and guided walks which aim to help raise awareness and encourage appreciation of the scenery, wildlife and heritage of the Highlands. This wide range of events and activities is aimed at local communities and visitors alike.
The community needs survey of 2016 suggested a greater need for community activities, social events and activities for children. The ranger service is a great way for people to come together in nature, learn more about particular aspects of natual history, enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle and share experiences.
Imogen Furlong of the Ranger Service has been in touch with GDDC and said:
We are particularly interested in facilitating communities to interact with their local environment in recreation and environmental education.
As well the Ranger service, we offer a variety of outdoor activities, paddle sports, rock and hillside sports. For the pre-schoolers we have developed a programme called puddle jumpers. We'd be happy to put a bespoke package together for the community and would be happy to travel to Garve and District.
