The reason for their visit was to investigate the impacts the quarry has on the surrounding environment and the economy and what impacts the quarry has on the national park.
Quite often the pupils have misconceptions regarding the negative impacts of the quarrying industry. As a result of these visits we have found that they leave with more positives than negatives regarding the quarrying operations at Cambusmore.
They are always interested to hear about the restoration plan and all the environmental improvements we carry out around the site to improve the biodiversity of the site and surrounding area. Although on the day of the visit the weather the was cold and windy all the students enjoyed seemed to enjoy the visit. There’s already snow on the hills!
