Community Native Woodland Project

CELT were commissioned to make a sign for Mooghaun heritage site in Co Clare. Andrew and Bob completed a biodiversity surveying day with local schools. Read the full report here.

This project is a first step in a much bigger idea to reconnect remnant native woodlands throughout the region which were once part of the Great Forest of Aughty covering thousands of sq kilometres along the western side of Lough Derg (River Shannon) and stretching across East Clare and South Galway to the edge of The Burren.  CELT and Woodland League are encouraging landowners in the region to plant more native trees and be a part of this exciting new initiative.
