John Muir Award

Posted on: April 4th, 2012

Starting on the 16th April 2012 some of the Chrysalis members alongside young people from the local community will be working together to achieve a John Muir Award.

Supported by staff and in partnership with Mobex and NADT (North Allerdale Development Trust) the group will be working together to gain the Conserver Level Award.  The award covers areas such as exploring a wild place, conservation and sharing information.

The group have chosen to use the garden at The Meeting Place near Wigton town centre to create a sensory garden.  The garden will also focus on encouraging wildlife and make it a great place for people to be.

The award will take up to six months to complete.  When completed we are planning to hold an open day so that everyone can come along and experience what has been achieved and see the groups presentations and displays.  We will keep you posted on progress!
