CLDC Community Biodiversity Enhancement Plans for Outdoor recreational spaces

Clare Local Development Company (CLDC) is now taking applications for a LEADER funded online and field-based training programme to help participants prepare a biodiversity enhancement plan for an outdoor recreational space in their community. It can be any site which has public access which people use for recreation; a park, perimeter of a sports or playground, footpath, the grounds of a community building (church, community centre), a footpath, or other green space. The training which is free of charge and which will run for a total of 6 months is open to all community groups in County Clare. It will be held as a series of 12 webinars taking place on Wednesday evenings from 12th May to 28th July, 2021 combined with on-site training, and a final series of 4 online workshops in September to complete the plans.

The programme will be led by Dr Fran Giaquinto who will explain the fundamentals of biodiversity and habitat protection, and show participants how to recognise the potential for increasing biodiversity in their selected area. Places are limited to 25 groups and the selection of  the participant groups will be based on the information contained in the application form. Participants will need access to Internet and a smart phone or laptop. The trainers will assist with set up and use of the online Zoom software.

Further information can be obtained by emailing Deadline for applications: 30th April 2021
