Strode students getting stuck in to local landscape

We have had three groups from Strode College out this week, each on SWT’s Westhay Moor NNR, and each doing different projects.

On Monday we had second year Media students working with us and Somerset Film on our Sights & Sounds of the Marshes project. They were recording the ‘unheard sounds’ of the Marshes that will be used in their magazine show about the area.

On Wednesday it was the weekly group of Strode Young Volunteers that were out cutting and burning willow from some wet woodland.  They are students from different disciplines that come together to help with practical tasks on the reserves of all our different partners. This is part of the College’s Enrichment Programme.

This morning was the turn of the first year Media students who are doing a project with ourselves and the University of the West of England called ‘Interpreting Landscape Change in the Avalon Marshes’.  They are working on disseminating messages about climate change and the landscape from research that was conducted a few years ago.

Keep an eye on our website for more news about these projects, and for the students’ films which will go online after Easter.

Thank you Strode College for your continued support and enthusiasm.
