Ayrshire College students celebrated the successful collaboration between East Ayrshire Countryside Services team and the College’s Environmental Management course by winning the John Muir Award. The two main areas that have been beneficial outcomes of the project are:
• Environmental - access is very important in the site, boardwalks control foot fall and allow people into the area which would have been inaccessible otherwise, ensuring minimum damage to vegetation and the area.
• Social - access improvement for all abilities and visitors to the park are encouraged to enjoy the benefits of the whole site. Students have benefitted from experiencing practical, outdoor activities that are environmentally sound and benefit the wider community. There are new collaborative partnerships with Ayrshire College, East Ayrshire Leisure and Dean Castle Country Park which are set to continue next year.
