The Kerry UNESCO Biosphere Reserve will host a series of biodiversity themed events during Heritage Week 2023.

Nature expert Thomas Canavan will lead a talk at Cronin’s Yard on August 15 and 16 on the flora and fauna of the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks.

Guest will visit heathland and bog to discuss the high nature value of these habitats and the species that they support.
Visitors are asked to meet at the Cronin’s Yard car park at 12pm on each afternoon and each session will last approximately two hours.

It is advised that appropriate clothing is worn for this outdoor event and that suitable footwear for rough terrain is also worn, no dogs please.

On August 180 they will venture to Gortbrack Organic Farm in Ballyseedy, Tralee. A tour of the various habitats that occur within the farm and the species they support will be provided.

“We will also discuss the relationship between farming and biodiversity, with a particular focus on organic produce,” said organiser Brendan Kirwin.

“”This award-winning farm is located just 8 km outside of Tralee town and hosts a diverse range of habitat types. The farm is home to a range of ecological and native Irish habitats including ponds, bog woodland, reed bed systems, and native hedgerows. This is a great opportunity to visit the farm and to expand your knowledge about our native habitats and species, and their interactions with farming practices.”

The Kerry UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is supported by the National Parks and Wildlife Service and Kerry County Council through the Local Biodiversity Action Fund. All events are free and places can be booked on the Kerry Biosphere Eventbrite page.
