Working with the John Muir Trust, Ardentinny Outdoor Centre will be undertaking monitoring and cleaning of the beach from Ardentinny Hotel to Finart Bay from the end of February. It’s anticipated that the visiting groups will undertake the work every 4-6 weeks, with local Strone School children hopefully also participating.
The Outdoor Centre’s Aidan Docherty said at the recent meeting of the Community Council that the conservation project will encourage the participating children to work towards the John Muir Trust Discover Award. Mr. Docherty also suggested that the centre may be able to offer some of its resources to the community such as strimming, grass-cutting and possibly assisting in the nature trail initiative.
Additionally, Ardentinny Outdoor Centre is introducing weekend groups at the centre, promoting existing centre activities with both the John Muir Trust and Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park and acting as an information point for promoting the area.
