Barony College Open Day 2013

We were delighted to be invited to attend the Barony College Open day again this year. Blue skies, glorious sunshine and wonderful people made it a fantastic day.  The Making the Most of Moorlands project had a project stand with information, photographs, leaflets, a wildilfe quiz (of skulls and feathers), a moorland art activity and video footage from our Hen Harrier nest cameras. We welcomed over two hundred people through the doors.. great to meet you all. Check out some of the fantastic artwork produced by our visitors.. young and old.

Thank you to all the young artists for joining in and producing some fantastic moorland work.
