Lúnasa Festival:Go Wild in the Ring of Gullion- Wild about Plants and field trip

Join Dr. John Faulkner from BSBI and County Armagh Wildlife Society for a talk on the species of uncommon/declining plants species in South Armagh as highlighted in 2015 rare plant register for the county.

John Faulkner has worked for the Ministry of Agriculture for Northern Ireland and for Queen’s University Belfast as a lecturer in agricultural genetics, before going on to become Director of Natural Heritage for the Northern Ireland Environment Agency. He has lived in County Armagh for forty years, and has explored many of its wilder nooks and crannies with the County Armagh Wildlife Society.

After the talk, we will travel in a coach to visit some sites in the Ring of Gullion.

It is vitally important that these species are conserved, as they are often indicative of vulnerable habitats. Of the 70 species listed in the Wildlife Order (N.I.) 1985, Schedule 8, 26% may be found in Armagh. Thus its flora is of conservation Importance in regional terms.
