Native Woodland Trust Christmas Decoration & Crafts at Blessington
Christmas Crafts in the Woods
Would you like to save money and make some beautiful Christmas decorations? If so then come along to the Native Woodland Trusts Blessington nature reserve on Saturday 7th December from 12pm to 3:00pm for some Christmas crafts.
The Native Woodland Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to the protection of Ireland’s rare native and ancient woodland. The Trust achieves this by setting up woodland reserves around the country such as their reserve at Blessington in County Wicklow. This reserves network allows the Trust to protect existing woodland as well as plant new native woodland for the future. As part our work we run fun family events on our reserves to encourage the community to visit and use their local woodlands and learn about their local woodland heritage.
Our Blessington reserve is full of natural materials which can be transformed into beautiful ornaments for your home this Christmas. On the day we will be using these natural materials found in the woodlands to make beautiful decorations to bring home or as a gift unique for a friend. The meeting point for this walk will be at 6:00 pm at the ESB car park off the N81 just south of the reserve. For a map and further details please check our website http://www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie/ or the events section of our Facebook page. This event will run from 12:00 pm until 3:00pm and all are welcome. The event is free for NWT members with a suggested donation of €4 for non-members.
