Our Countrysiders who are our junior members aged 10-16 years are planning a weekend campout at a local farming estate where they take on board a variety of jobs that need to be completed over the weekend period. These include building a bridge from mainland to an island on a lake on the estate, to build otter holts to encourage otter’s to the area, clearing areas around the lake to encourage new growth and new species and to possibly build bird boxes that can be put up to encourage birds to nest locally. The children will be led by our volunteer helpers and senior members as well as professional conservationists who will be teaching the children how we can help our local environments by doing simple things. To enhance the conditions on the Euston Farm Estate in Norfolk so that the local community can benefit from the improvements that we intend to make to the Estate. To teach the junior members some basic skills that they will be able to continue to use throughout their life.

What we'll deliver:

  • Make a bridge to enhance animal habitats
  • Build and erect otter holts
  • Clear waterways to encourage animals to reproduce

Why it's a great idea:

To encourage children to preserve our countryside and community in which we live. To encourage children to look at and be involved with agriculture and to potentially continue and go in to our young farmers organisation and be our next generation of young farmers who can continue the heritage of farming as we know it.

Steps to get it done:

  • Building a bridge
