It is accomplished


After many months of research, interviews reading discovering exploring conservation work and sharing my findings it is complete

My beautiful award 

On Saturday last with a group from Youth Services in Clackmannanshire Council I spent the day sharing my research and celebrating my achievements

In celebrating my achievement the Trust's Award Manager Toby Clark commented 

"Congratulations to Seamus Corry for achieving his prestigious John Muir Conserver Award. For the past year Seamus has has invested a significant amount of time enjoying, and enhancing Gartmorn Dam for the benefit of biodiversity and his own personal development. Less than 2% of the 10,000 John Muir Awards that are achieved each year in Scotland are at the advanced Conserver level. This is testament to Seamus's dedication and commitment to wild places. I think John Muir would have been proud of his achievement."
