After the War: For ex members of the Armed Forces.

Recently I learned of a project called Forces of Nature.

This programme was run on the Isle of Wight  for ex members of the Armed Forces,who would like to learn new skills involving Nature.

It was for volunteers that would work in conservation projects on the Island.

They would then gain an accredited   John Muir Trust award.

The work would help people to find an interest in Nature, such as birds,insects trees or fish.

Nature can provide a wonderful therapy after traumatic events.

It gives the mind a chance to engage in something new.

What better way to do this than to work with others in conservation  projects that benefit those involved and the community.
