Would you like to learn how to identify some of Ireland’s native trees and wildflowers? Then come along to the Native Woodland Trust’s tree and wildflower walk in Ardan Wood, Tyrrellspass on Saturday, April 11 at 11am.

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 Ardan Wood 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.

On the day there will be a stroll through the woods and see how many trees and wildflowers we can identify. If you are a beginner to flower or tree identification and would love to learn to identify some of our common species this is a great opportunity to do so.

The meeting point for this event will be at 11am at Tyrrellspass Castle car park, Tyrrellspass, Co. Westmeath. For a map and further details please check our website www.nativewoodlandtrust.ie or the events section of our Facebook page. This event will run from 11am until 12.30pm and all are welcome. The event is free for members with a suggested donation of €4 for non-members.
