Community Biodiversity Workshops for Clane

Clane Tidy Towns is delighted to invite you to a set of three practical workshops dedicated to protecting and encouraging Biodiversity in Clane. In addition, with the generous support of Clane Project Centre, we have some exciting ideas about showcasing any measures in public spaces you might decide to take…

Community Workshops

Clane is one of ten communities participating in a Community Biodiversity Workshop initiative in County Kildare in 2020. Three online workshops have now been announced to share practical ways in which our biodiversity can be protected and enhanced for future generations, and help apply these techniques to locations in and around Clane. Residents, Residents Associations, and all organisations maintaining property in Clane are encouraged to attend.

  • Introductory Biodiversity Workshop Tuesday 1st Sept 7-9pm on Zoom. This webinar is open to all and will cover general habitat types typically found in most community spaces and explain how to create and manage them. Communities from around Kildare are invited to this training programme. 
  • Clane Training Session 1: Saturday Sept 26th (9.30am-12.30pm). A half day webinar focused on Clane. This will focus on some of the spaces and features in our community and identify specific opportunities for enhancing biodiversity.
  • Clane Training Session 2: Tuesday Oct 6th (6.30-9pm) on Zoom. A final webinar dedicated to Clane where we will finalise actions and other details to be included in the local Action Plans specific to Clane.

Exact details will depend on the number and the nature of the locations in Clane, but we think a coordinated set of discrete signage might be a delightful addition to the community.
