We are extremely happy to announce that Learning about Forests (LEAF) Ireland teamed up with the Tree Council of Ireland Thursday 6 October, Tetra Pak Tree Day to officially launch the International LEAF programme.
The Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce has officially launched the LEAF programme to 30 schools in County Limerick. Through interactive learning and field trips the programme reconnects the next generation with their environment, educating them to be more conscious of protecting it and instilling in students a sense of ownership of the natural world that surrounds them. There will be emphases on using Curragh Chase Forest Park as a focal point for training and events in the region. The park, which is managed by Coillte, covers 313 hectares of mixed woodlands, park land and lakes which together provide a rich habitat for a diverse range of animals and plants.
