Native Woodland Family Walk
Would you like to learn about native trees and some of the wildlife found in Ireland? Why not join us for a family friendly nature walk on our Blessington reserve on Saturday 23rd April.
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 the Blessington reserve. This reserves network allows the Trust to protect existing woodland as well as plant new native woodland for the future. Part of the work we do involves running educational and fun events for our members and the public to encourage more people to use their local woodlands.
On the nature walk we will take a stroll through the reserve, chatting about the native trees found there and looking for signs of wildlife. There will be a nature scavenger hunt for the kids to take part in as we go to keep them involved and learning.
The meeting point for this event will be at the ESB car park off the N81 just south of the reserve. For a map and further details please check our website www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie or the events section of our Facebook page. All are welcome. The event is free for members with a suggested donation of €4 for non-members. Welly boots are advised. The walk is not suitable for buggies.
