Spending time in nature is good for us and good for our biodiversity. As the year unfolds, it is a great time to notice nature all around us and to encourage wildlife on our doorsteps. The Heritage Office of Wicklow County Council and Wicklow Library Service have teamed up to bring you a seasonal  programme of  free online talks to help you ‘Spring into nature’.

The first two talks focus on inviting wildlife into our gardens and are  scheduled for the 9th  and the 16th February via zoom.  As the seasons unfold we hope to bring you more talks brought to you as part of Wicklow County Council’s Healthy Ireland, Keeping Well campaign.

These are FREE events, but capacity is limited and tickets can be booked via eventbrite to reserve your place
