The Green Activities Programme offers young people the chance to become involved in practical outdoor activities associated with benefiting Somerset’s protected natural areas and green spaces.

Young volunteers can learn new skills and gain nationally recognised qualifications. Download and read our information leaflet to find out what our programme is able to offer in terms of skills and qualifications.

The Green Activities Programme team works in collaboration with a range of environmental organisations such as the National Trust, Somerset Wildlife Trusts, Exmoor National Park, Forestry Commission as well as many others, to allow young people to come into more contact with their local protected natural areas. To encourage involvement, SRYP has offered a number of Green Taster Days.

A report on a recent project can be found at this link.

What the young people said about their experience on the project

The Green Activity programme is also working in partnership with Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty AONB on a new project in the Mendip hills. Groups of young volunteers will be carrying out specific conservation projects aimed at conserving Blackdown – high in the Mendips.

A group of volunteers recruited from Weston – Super – Mare completed a boardwalk across a particularly muddy section of path this winter.

A new group will be recruited at the end of the summer.  The volunteers receive nationally recognised accreditations while working on the project.

We have a leaflet available which you can which you can download and printout here

And a more detailed report on the project so far which you can read here.

The group carry their boardwalk to the site, then laying the boardwalk, finally, the group with their completed boardwalk.
