The Friends of Troopers Hill are very keen that people of all ages should benefit from the Local Nature Reserve. This page links to some of the projects we have run with young people.

We also organise and support lots of Events that are aimed at getting younger people involved in the hill and to help them to appreciate and respect its unique environment.


Young Rangers

Friends of Troopers Hill are working in partnership with a team of 16-25 year olds, our 'Young Rangers', to create projects to protect the Nature Reserve for future generations.

Groundwork South are providing training, mentoring and support to the team to grow confidence and skills in conservation, woodcraft, foraging, first aid, campaigning, mentoring, video making, podcasting and more.

This volunteer programme is free and part of Kick The Dust: Future Proof Parks. Please email amy.walsh@groundwork.org.uk for more information.

The Young Rangers are leading on the organisation of an Art Competition to celebrate 25 years of Troopers Hill as a Local Nature Reserve.

Some of the other activities that our team of Young Rangers have already taken part in, include a Scavenger Hunt in May 2019 and a Conservation Work Party as part of three days of activities on the Hill in August 2019.

Our Young Rangers have also established a Friends of Troopers Hill Instagram page which they manage:
