Biodiversity Training

Louth LEADER wish to recruit communities from all of County Louth to participate in a LEADER funded local biodiversity training programme delivered by Dr Fran Giaquinto and Bernie O’Connor. The programme will start with two days of training about biodiversity action planning. Groups will prepare their own specific biodiversity action plans for their local communities. In phase 2, the trainers will mentor each group guiding the preparation of the plans. This is a great opportunity to learn, share ideas, meet new people and prepare to deliver a biodiversity action plan that can bring long term benefit to your community.
