West Dunbartonshire students have been enjoying working outdoors with their local countryside ranger Gillian Neal.
The students have helped Gillian prepare forest school sites around the West Dunbartonshire area which are then used by local nurseries and school pupils.
Over the six weeks the students have learned about local wildlife, whilst developing their own craft skills and knowledge.
At the Saltings site in Old Kilpatrick the students have been building ponds. The students found this a very mucky but rewarding experience. The ponds can be seen from the Erskine Bridge.
The students from Our Lady and St Patrick’s High School, Clydebank High and St Peter of the Apostle High School have worked successfully as part of a team.
During the summer they hope to carry out a community impact project in partnership with the Ranger service.
