Saturday 5th November: Native Woodland Trust Laragh Woodland Volunteer Tree Planting
Would you like to help out with some tree planting to help create a native woodland? On Saturday 5th November a volunteer planting day will be taking place on the Native Woodland Trust’s site in Laragh.
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 Laragh 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.
This will be our first planting day of the season at our Laragh site and we really need lots of hands to get as many trees as possible planted. Tree planting is a fun way to spend a couple of hours with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. You don’t need to have any experience- we’ll show you what to do! There is a short, steep slope to get to the site and so this is not suitable for everyone. This event is weather dependent. We provide the tools but be sure to wear weather appropriate clothing and footwear.
Don’t forget to bring along a snack and a drink! The more the merrier so bring your friends!
The meeting point for this event will be at 11am at Trooperstown Forest car park. For a map and further details please check our website www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie or the events section of our Facebook page.
