As it is coming into Autumn our focus is turning to habitat creation and we are working weekly with our partners at An Tobar and Derrymore House with their volunteer teams to create valuable freshwater habitats and resting spots for our native amphibians and reptiles.
While these are closed events, we are keen to meet other landowners in the area who would be interested in supporting native biodiversity! We can arrange and organise volunteers the creation of small ponds that support a huge diversity of life at no cost to landowners!
There will be a ramble on Camlough Mountain on Saturday 24th October, we will be meeting at the forest service entrance gate and making for the summit, checking ponds and tussock grasses for beasties along the way. This shorter walk still involves a fair amount of off-road walking on uneven terrain, so boots are a must. We will be meeting at 11:00 and finishing for around 14:00.
We have limited places of all guided walks to please confirm your place by contacting project officer Josh on [email protected] beforehand!
We also have a very special cross over event upcoming with Ann Ward of Xhale Mindfulness and Meditation. There is a currently a single place left for this, so move fast. On this event we will be meeting at Kileavy for a gentle walk with discussions about our breathing and awareness of the natural world around us. This day will finish with a guided forest bathing session at one of Ann’s very own little slices of Eden in South Armagh.
