Educational energy trail opens

An energy trail has opened at the Hill of Banchory Biomass Energy Centre (HOBESCO) in the UK.

The purpose of the new trail is to educate children about renewable energy and the environment. Pupils from Crathes Primary School were among the first to experience it.

The Forestry Commission Scotland part-funded the project and the organisation's representative Jim Dewar officially opened it.

At the opening ceremony he said: 'It is clear from the enthusiastic interaction shown by local school children that the layout, content and presentation of how forests can deliver a variety of habitats, a productive resource and a place in the landscape captured their full attention.'
