From spring woodlands, coastal dune systems, mountains, to our fabulous wetlands there is so much to explore! So join us as we go on a magical mystery tour ‘to the waters and the wild’ in Sligo on Friday 22nd May 2015. The group will travel by bus and participants should dress appropriately for outdoor activities and bring a picnic lunch and refreshments. Booking is essential (by 1pm Thursday 21st May 2015) as places are strictly limited. Biodiversity Day is all about connecting people with nature. It’s about communicating the importance of biodiversity and motivating people to play their part in protecting it. It’s also about entertaining them; showing the fun and wonder that can be found in nature; and inspiring people to learn more, see more, do more.
