About this event
Join us as we celebrate National Biodiversity Week by taking a wonder through our Rinnagan nature reserve in Lecarrow, Co. Roscommon.
We will be meeting our little carpark at our Lecarrow Reserve at 10:30 am on Saturday the 27th of May 2023 (Maps: https://goo.gl/maps/Qq8drbLrVwweQxRr9)
From there we will take a walk through the reserve; firstly past our nursery, then through the wildflower meadow, the emergent woodland and scrub section, and finally the native woodland which terminates on the banks of Lough Ree. It’s here we’ll have our picnic and packed lunches before heading back through the reserve home.
We’ll learn more about the site itself, the trees and animals who call it home. We’ll also learn about how the reserve fits in in terms of conservation in the surrounding area, and how our local Roscommon branch are expanding nearby ancient woodlands one seedling at a time.
What to bring:
Warm and waterproof clothing
Packed lunch, water, snacks
Any medication you may need
Your favorite nature walk gear if you have; such as binoculars or a hand lens.
We will be providing tea, coffee and biscuits for our picnic. If you have a reusable coffee/tea cup, please bring this along to minimize waste on the day.
We regret to advise that there are no bathroom facilities at our Lecarrow nature reserve, however the nearby village of Lecarrow is under 7 minutes drive from the site.
Cancellation Note: Events may be cancelled on short notice if there are adverse weather conditions or weather warnings in place. In the event that we do cancel an event on short notice, we will send an email to inform you as early as possible.
