JUNIOR Rangers from Wrexham have been presented with awards.
The junior rangers, aged between eight and 16, earned themselves awards for skills in animal husbandry, park patrols, park maintenance and crafts. The young rangers can gain four types of award, ranging from Hazel, Silver Birch, Oak and Sequoia, and each one reflects the level they have attained.
To gain a Sequoia can take up to two years and demonstrates the rangers' commitment to their tasks. Junior rangers also earn valuable credits from the Children's University.
John Bradbury, chief environment officer, said: 'The Junior Rangers always have a good time when at the parks and their work is both rewarding and valuable to the smooth running of the country parks. Their achievements are to be congratulated and I wish them all good luck in the future.'
The country parks have 50 volunteer Junior Rangers. If you would like further information on becoming one contact 01978 822780.
