Saturday 16th August 2014: Blessington Butterfly Walk for Kids
Would you like to learn a little bit more about the butterflies found in Ireland? If so then come along to the Native Woodland Trust butterfly walk. This event is on the 16th August from 12 noon to 2pm at the NWT Blessington Reserve.
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. 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 this event we will be taking a walk around the Blessington Reserve to see what butterflies we can find. The kids will learn a bit about butterflies while getting outdoors for a fun and active afternoon of searching for butterflies. Located not far from Dublin this reserve is great for getting out for a walk and learning about nature.
The meeting point for this event will be at 12noon 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. This event will run from 12noon until 2pm and all are welcome. The event is free for members with a suggested donation of €4 for non-members. This event is weather-dependent.
