‘Rediscovering the Douglas Water’ is a bespoke project that involved three Primary schools situated close to Hagshaw Hill Windfarm. In 2016 the Clyde River Foundation provided an opportunity for all children from Douglas, Rigside and Coalburn Primaries to participate in an outdoor education project. The project aimed to increase their awareness of the importance of their local river by involving each entire school and the village communities. The local environment has benefited from the increased awareness of a generation of residents. Teachers used the project to enhance Curriculum for Excellence learning outcomes across a host of subjects.
