Hector is top young naturalist
Members of The Young Naturalist Club recently held their Christmas party in the ranger centre at Brodick Country Park.
This year Hector MacArthur was awarded the Young Naturalist of the Year cup. He has shown great enthusiasm for and knowledge of the natural world. Sophie Smyth and Finn Popplewell were runners-up.
The club meets on the second Saturday of every month and any six to 11-year-old can go along.
The club runs outside activities to encourage youngsters to experience the natural world and find out more about different topics. The next meeting is on Saturday January 12 when they will be having a winter warmer event in the Bronze Age roundhouse.
