Laragh Volunteer Tree Planting Day

Sunday 19th April: Native Woodland Trust Laragh Woodland Volunteer Day

Would you like to help out for a few hours at a new, developing woodland? If so then come along to the Native Woodland Trust volunteer day on 19th April at the NWT Laragh Reserve.

The Native Woodland Trust is an environmental charity dedicated to the protection of Ireland’s rare native and ancient woodland. The Trust achieves this by setting up woodland reserves around the country, such as the Laragh reserve. This reserves network allows the Trust to protect existing woodland as well as plant new native woodland for the future. Part of the work we do involves running educational and fun events for our members and the public to encourage more people to use their local woodlands.

 There is a global drive this year to plant one billion trees for Earth Day. As Earth Day falls midweek and so would not suit many of our volunteers we have decided to contribute to this global effort a few days in advance. On this volunteer day we will be planting young native trees in our new woodland in Laragh. Our Laragh reserve is in a beautiful location with great views, however it is located at the top of a short, steep slope and so is not suitable for everyone. This event is weather dependent.

 The meeting point for this event will be at 11:00 am at the Trooperstown Forest car park in Laragh on Sunday 19th April. Please wear weather appropriate clothing. For a map and further details please check our website www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie or the events section of our Facebook page. This event is weather dependent. For more details please contact Rebecca at rebecca.doyle@nativewoodlandtrust.ie or on 087 9619083.

 Meeting Point: Trooperstown Forest car park (located on the R765 Road between Annamoe and Laragh.

Meeting Time: 11am
