OUTREACH

Get invovled and contribute to a landmark conservation project in the South of Scotland.

EAGLE SCHOOLS

Our celebrated 'Eagle Schools' programme has engaged hundreds of primary aged children across the South of Scotland with Golden Eagles, their ecology and their importance in the landscape.

The engaging programme of work culminates with 'Eagle Day', where the schools open their doors and welcome in the local community to hear from the students themselves about their learning.

A visit from Mac, a young male Golden Eagle and the wonderful falconer Ray Lowden (Kielder Bird Of Prey Centre) thanks the students and staff for all their hard work and efforts.

VOLUNTEERING

Eagle Spotters

If you enjoy getting out and about up in the hills, you may be able to help us. We are looking to build a network of eagle spotters all across the South of Scotland. There are no specific routes or times; this is an informal role, open to all, that can be undertaken as part of your own walks and outings.

Our Raptor ID Workshop, designed to equip you with all you need to confidently identify a Golden Eagle, is coming soon.. Sign up to our newsletter for updates. Other than that, just keep your eyes to the skies and who knows, you might be seeing a Golden Eagle near you very soon!

No sign up necessary, just report any sightings via our Contact page.

Practical Conservation @ Glenlude

Come along and help the John Muir Trust improve the habitat of their Glenlude site!

Tasks such as brash-hedging, fence removal, tree-planting and a variety of others are always rewarded with a cuppa and biscuits in front of the log burner in the comfortable volunteer cabin on-site.

And there's always the outside chance of an Eagle sighting........

EAGLE CHAMPIONS

In May 2019, BBC Landward visited Traquair House near Innerleithen in the Scottish Borders to film the Innerleithen Cubs doing some fantastic things to become the UK's very first 'Eagle Champions'. Watch the BBC Landward film here.

It was a fantastic day for everyone who was involved! Thank you to Tim and the team at Wild Tree Adventures, falconer Dougie McKenna, Traquair House, BBC Landward and most importantly the Innerleithen Cubs for all of their enthusiasm, hard work and perserverance!

Working with YOUNG ADULTS

As part of our Outreach Work we have supported various groups of young adults from the South of Scotland in various award schemes. Through practical conservation work and treks in Eagle country, falconry experiences and bushcraft 'Eat like an Eagle' sessions we have helped them to succeed whilst inspiring an interest in Eagle conservation.
