Wildlife enthusiast Ellie shares her Growing Confidence Project experiences

As the Growing Confidence project gathers momentum more and more young people are getting involved and enjoying the diverse range of opportunities which are being offered.  Wildlife enthusiast and photographer Ellie Forrester has been coming along on our Growing Confidence project day events at FSC Preston Montford to build her knowledge and skills before she starts a degree in wildlife conservation and ecology this autumn.

Ellie took the opportunity to share her enthusiasm and her experiences in an article which has been published in the latest edition of New Nature magazine. You can read the full article here http://docs.wixstatic.com/ugd/15ec9b_2c848d655ae84435a58675de85cb0d52.pdf

 About the Growing Confidence Project
Growing Confidence (GC) is a five year project giving young people the opportunity to discover more about wildlife and wild places and have fun learning skills in their local environment. FSC Preston Montford is working together with Shropshire Wildlife Trust, Fordhall Community Land Initiative and The Plunkett Foundation to offer a wide range of inspiring opportunities for young people aged 11-25.

This summer we have a programme of residentials for 16-24 year olds as part of the Growing Confidence Project you can find out more at www.field-studies-council.org/gc
