About Young Rangers

Young Rangers is a free and exciting project for people aged 13 to 19. If you enjoy being outdoors and want to make a difference to our local environment from Amble to Berwick then come and join us and have some fun!


You will have a chance to work outdoors learning practical skills in conservation such as using tools, managing landscapes, creating new habitats and appreciating local wildlife. Being a Young Ranger offers a unique learning experience with diverse opportunities, whilst also having fun and making new friends. 

We will also work towards achieving the John Muir award, which is focused on helping people care for and enjoy wild places. This can be a great addition to your CV.

All too often, young people in the 13 – 19 age bracket receive a negative press, so it is wonderful for this project to give young people a chance to make a difference.

Young Rangers Youth Worker

Sessions run every other Saturday (during term time). 

Young Rangers sessions will take place throughout the Coast Care project area of Amble to Berwick with some trips further afield. We meet every other Saturday at the Coast Care Volunteer Centre at The Hub, Seahouses and require regular commitment. The group is run by an experienced Youth Worker, Jane Smith and a skilled Coast Care Project Assistant, Kristian Purchase who are both First Aid qualified and DBS checked. 

Our Partners

With support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, we are working together with Northumberland Wildlife Trust, Seahouses Development Trust and Northumberland Coast AONB to look after our coastal environment.
