Members of the Young Curators Club at Dornoch's Historylinks museum have embarked on the next stage of an environment and heritage project.

The youngsters are now concentrating on native woodland and trees and are working with Trish Matthews of Nature Workshop.

She brought to a recent session some 3d tree story 'cabinets' to inspire the young curators to create their own mythical story to accompany a specific tree species.

Working in pairs, they chose ‘blind’ from sets of picture cards a native tree, a traditional mythical character and some objects as a springboard to their stories.

The group have previously learned all about the World War II Dig for Victory campaign.

So inspired were they that they decided to embark on a growing programme of their own in the museum garden.
