JMT volunteers working hard in Assynt
CALL partners were delighted to have John Muir Trust volunteers based in Assynt from 10th June for a week-long workparty. About 20 volunteers in total were given a week’s worth of jobs, half way up a mountain (Quinag), fixing paths, shifting rocks, digging and path repair close to Suilven on Assynt Foundation ground. On Thursday they did Sitka Spruce removal in Culag woods, managed by Culag Community Woodland Trustd. The week was rounded off in glorious sunshine on Friday at the Little Assynt tree nursery, collecting tree seeds and doing essential nursery work. A very productive week!
The volunteers, led by Sandy Maxwell, did an impressive amount of work, in varied weather conditions, and made a real difference locally. When asked what their incentive was one volunteer answered that, ‘amongst other things it was the satisfaction of seeing a job well done.’ It was heart-warming to see such dedication and enthusiasm towards improving the land.
