Connemara Green Festival 2020 is going online

We have had to take the difficult decision not to hold a festival this year in line with government restrictions but we want to continue to raise awareness of the unique ecology of Connemara and continue with our conservation work.

We will be hosting online environmental conservation interactive talks during the coming months on a range of interesting and important topics and how they relate to Connemara.

We will also be launching Join our 30-day ‘Actions for Conservation’ challenge in November with simple but effective ways in which we can all get involved in protecting our environment.

Please keep an eye on our website and social media for links to talks and how to get involved in our 30 day challenge.

We look forward to celebrating our own unique ecology with you over the coming months.
