Events

May 13th – 22nd

Events range from guided tours to spot whales and bats, to hands-on workshops for building community wildlife gardens. At both dawn and dusk, there are opportunities to bask in birdsong on guided walks across Ireland. There will be workshops so you can get to know your weeds or get your hands dirty while learning about composting. Webinars will cover the importance of biodiversity for human health, well-being and Irish culture, as well as what cross-sectoral economic measures can be taken to aid the life-supporting nature that surrounds us.
All this and more! For a full calendar of events see here: www.biodiversityweek.ie/events-calendar/
