Happily for all those involved in the Clarks bog project we are now seeing the project put to good use. Over the past 5 days we have had more than fifty cubs and scouts through the bog as part of their Naturalist badge qualification.
The cubs from 6th Morpeth troop were given a tree identification exercise which they all seemed to enjoy. The scouts were from 4th Morpeth troop and they had to choose from a mammal ID, flower ID, insect ID, tree ID, or pond life ID exercise. Again they seemed to enjoy themselves and they are back next week having done further research on each of the subjects.
All the participants survived the experience which is always a plus and we have further visits from other troops planned shortly.
Well done to all involved.
