Tackling Peak Oil, Climate Change and Economic Breakdown

Free family fun day with the RSPB at Creggan Country Park

 

Come along to Creggan Country Park on Saturday 7th May from 11am - 4pm and take part in the Ladybird Nature Trail with the RSPB.

 

It’s the perfect time of year to get outdoors for some fresh air and explore nature on your doorstep.  The Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) now have a North West representative to help raise awareness on local bird populations, recruit volunteers and take part in events across the City. 

 

The first North West RSPB event of 2011 will take place at Creggan Country Park on Saturday 7th May from 11am – 4pm. Creggan Country Park provides an ideal location for families to get up close to wildlife including buzzards, ravens, sparrow hawks and little grebe to name but a few. Families can experience the new Heritage trail - a treasure hunt style walking route complete with picnic areas and willow domes which provides the perfect setting for enjoying lunch in the great outdoors. Visitors will also take part in a guided nature trail around Creggan Country Park, quizzes and craft activities, learn more about local birds and be in with a chance to win prizes!

 

Karen Healy, Environmental Officer at Creggan Country Park said “We are delighted to work with the RSPB to raise awareness on local bird populations and give families a chance to get up close to nature.”

 

For more information on the event or if you are interested in becoming a volunteer with the RSPB, contact Colin Graham on 028 9049 1547.
