Heritage Week 2020
16th August: Managing Pollinators in Your Community Garden – A Pollinator Enhancement Study. IPCC will be uploading a video as part of Heritage Week 2020 on the 16th of August showcasing our ongoing pollinator project at the Bog of Allen Nature Centre in Co. Kildare. Learn all about the link between garden grassland management and pollinator biodiversity. This project is supported by Kildare County Council under their Heritage Grant Scheme.
16th August: Exploring the Peat Depth within an area of Cutover Bog on Girley Bog, Co. Meath. This Autumn the Irish Peatland Conservation Council will be investigating the depth of remaining peat on an area of cutover bog on Girley Bog, Co. Meath. The purpose of the study is to support the Irish Peatland Conservation Council in choosing the future restoration required to stabilise the seasonally fluctuating water table on this area of the reserve. Future restoration initiatives in this area will not only continue to manage the habitat for biodiversity but also aims to enhance carbon stored. This Heritage Week explore the variety of restoration initiatives possible on Irish peatlands by visiting http://www.ipcc.ie/advice/peatland-management-diy-tool-kit/ Supported by Meath County Council through their Heritage Grant Scheme 2020.
