1MA Explore the Den of Maidencraig Nature Reserve

Pupils from 1MA have built upon the knowledge gained through the S1 Raging Rivers course by visiting the Den of Maidencraig Nature Reserve where they conducted Geography fieldwork on the Denburn. The group were supported by Simon Whitworth, Aberdeen City Council Ranger, who provided input on various types of wildlife found in the grassland, woodland and river habitats.

The group will visit the River Muick later this month where they will undertake further Geography fieldwork this time supported by Fiona Smith (Balmoral Estate Ranger) before comparing and contrasting their findings from the two locations.
