May 11th 2012

A group of students from Langholm Academy and Langholm Primary have been volunteering with the Making the Most of Moorlands Project  for several weeks now, working towards their John Muir Discovery Award. The group volunteer every Friday and have undertaken various moorland activities to help them reach the Discover, Explore, Conserve and Share challenges of the award.

Today the group explored the freshwater invertebrate life in the Tarras and came face to face with some weird and wonderful creatures including a Golden Ringed Dragonfly nymph (photo), Swimming Mayfly nymph and Cased Caddisfly Larvae.
