Conservation Club

"Protect and conserve"

Conservation Club 002
Joint effort results in the huge rewards that we all enjoy.

Belhaven Hill School's Conservation Club (BHSCC) was established in 2011.

The aim of the Club is to channel our natural enthusiasm for fresh air, wild woods and windswept beaches into positive and creative conservation projects.

Legends in a lunchtime
Conservation Club aims to make a big contribution to the wider community.

We are always looking for ways to improve the school grounds as a haven and habitat for wildlife.

We also want to use our time and effort to run projects that will benefit wild plants and animals beyond the walls of the school in the wider East Lothian community.

All on the trunk
Helping nature out in the wild of the Shrub should be a real adventure!

In three short years we have made some real progress:

This year we aim to push beyond the school walls more than ever before. This term alone has seen 10 bird boxes erected at West Barns and Yester Primary Schools. Plans are also afoot for a 100m wildlife hedge to be planted near Garvald.

We have so many exciting projects running that every child can be involved.

Please contact me at to find out how you can help.
