On-site staff

Ben is a passionate educator and researcher, who enjoys working with a range of groups on sustainability and social-justice issues. After completing a Research Masters in Human Geography, Ben has worked on a number of environmental and education research projects. He recently finished a role at Children’s Neighborhoods Scotland, a place-based participatory action-research project working with communities living in areas of multiple deprivation across Glasgow. Outside of work, Ben is an avid hill runner and also loves spending time cycling, hiking or gardening.

I’m most looking forward to sharing my passion for, and interest in, Scotland’s natural environment and cultural heritage with those that visit the site. I love working with young people and can’t wait to spend some time working ‘hands-on’ with the project visitors. It’s rewarding to see people grow and learn, and I’m excited to see the growth in people who spend time here.
