Hi everyone. We are running some workshops in beautiful Carron in the heart of the Burren. Have a look and give us a shout if you are interested.

Cheers!


The Botany Society of National University of Ireland, Galway will host

A WEEKEND OF ECOLOGICAL WORKSHOPS & AN ART WORKSHOP

in the NUIG field station in Carron on the 2nd & 3rd of April


All are welcome to a talk by Sharon Parr (Burren Life Project, Saturday, 12pm) with complimentary lunch to follow:

"Farming the blooming Burren - agriculture or floriculture?"


SATURDAY WORKSHOPS
(each 2hrs long & costing €15):

"Introduction to the identification of GROUND BEETLES", 10:00-12:00
By Brendan Canning (Applied Ecology Unit, NUIG)
See The Beetles and get flying at your carabid ID skills.

"Introduction to BRYOPHYTE identification features", 14:00-16:00
By Rory Hodd (Botany & Plant Science, NUIG)
From pretty cushions to creeping (but not creepy!) mats - they know how to conquer a roof, a stone wall or an old shoe in the back yard and deserve to get their names out there!

"Native TREES AND SHRUBS - identification and uses", 16:00-18:00
By Anna Pielach (Landscape Architect, Botany & Plant Science, NUIG)
Fancy planting a hedgerow that will be a beautiful biodiversity oasis rather than stick out like a sore thumb on the landscape? Learn how to identify native woody species and how they could work for you!


SUNDAY ART CLASS
(4hrs, €20, lunch and drawing materials included, but feel free to bring your own pencils etc.):

Free-hand PENCIL DRAWING by Anna Pielach,
11:00-16:00 (including 1hr lunch break)
Always wanted to try or tried and tore a few sheets of paper and some hair out? Overcome that fear of pencil and learn how to make sketches of trees, shrubs, rocks and whatnot!



Places are limited: Email botanysoc@socs.nuigalway.ie or PM me to book your place.

Overnight accommodation and dinner on Saturday and breakfast on Sunday can be provided for an additional €20

Package deal available: Saturday and Sunday workshops, meals and accommodation: €70


See you there!
