INVASIVE PLANTS AND ANIMALS IN IRELAND TODAY THEIR EFFECT ON OUR ENVIRONMENT

On 19th April, we are pleased to present our second Spring talk. We welcome Elaine O’Riordan who is the Manager for the Galway County Biodiversity Project ‘People and Nature’. Biodiversity simply means the great variety of life in nature including all the different plants, animals and habitats.  The aim of the project is to encourage greater awareness and care for the biodiversity of County Galway.

Invasive species are the second greatest threat to biodiversity after habitat loss. Elaine will discuss the problem with invasive plant and animal species in general and describe  some of the main pest alien species in County Galway.

The talk will take place in the Angler’s Rest Hotel, Headford at 8pm on Thursday 19th April. There will be no charge for admittance but donations will be requested on the night. Any funds raised will go towards future Environment Group projects.

All welcome!
