It is with great excitement that we launch the dates and themes of our upcoming WESSA uMngeni Valley Junior Field Guides programme. Following a very successful first year of Junior Field Guides, we shall start off our second year on the 29th of July by going on a ‘Desert Safari’.
This programme provides young nature enthusiasts aged between 8 and 12 with the opportunity to learn more about the environment and to prepare them for the possibility of a future in guiding or conservation. Learners will follow the FGASA (Field Guide Association of South Africa) junior membership programme, conducted by WESSA. Once the workbook has been completed and a mark of 85% has been attained, a certificate will be issued for the theme ‘Desert Safari’.
