The Marsh Fritillary Butterfly
Kildare Biodiversity Week has been organised to develop awareness of the importance of biodiversity and to better understand its value to the local, national and international communities.
Kildare Biodiversity Week is part of a European initiative to encourage people to take an interest in their local Biodiversity. The people of Kildare are invited to get out into Kildare’s Biodiversity, to visit Kildare’s wild spots, lakes, rivers, bogs, woodlands or to simply enjoy the biodiversity of their back garden.
Some of the events include Butterflies of Castletown, on Sunday, May 26.
On May 23, next, there will be a BioDiversity Breakfast, with opportunities to learn about Biodiversity Projects through Leader.
From 10am to 12pm, the Co Kildare LEADER Partnership, will be holding a guided tour of Castletown Parkland, with Head Gardener Rory Finnegan, at 11am.
