The Conservation Volunteers have teamed up with OWLS and ECO-UNESCO to provide people of all ages with the opportunity to do something practical for wildlife.
OWLS is aimed at children in the age group 4-15 who want to learn and discover more about the natural world whilst having fun at the same time. OWL members are invited to events that help develop awareness and understanding of what’s around them through a variety of outdoor activities that are hands-on. These range from wildlife trips, birdbox making, learning to survive in the wild, arts and crafts, and much more. Contact Andrew Fleming on 087 3299 936 or visit www.owls.ie for more details.
ECO-UNESCO’s outdoor youth programme is aimed at young people aged 12-18 that are keen to get out and about to learn more about wildlife and nature in their locality. Groups meet once a month to learn new skills, meet others interested in environmental issues and have some fun. Activities include practical conservation tasks, field research, wildlife walks and hikes and others. Contact Colin on 01 6625 491 or visit www.ecounesco.ie for more details.
