General assistant Mark O'Brien, who works at our Glen Nevis Youth Hostel took some time out of his hostel duties to spend a few days working with the Nevis Partnership a community conservation charity.

The charity work to ensure that the popular Nevis area is maintained and unique wildlife and landscapes are protected. Mark often helps in his own time, but to support the community venture he was given some time off to get more involved in the ongoing projects.

So far he's been path building, tree thinning and the group also put in place these wonderful wildlife boxes. Well done to Mark and the rest of the group for all their hard work.
