Students of of Drimnagh Castle secondary school will plant 100 native trees, in a project that is being funded by KBIGI and delivered by the staff Environmental Education Unit (EEU) of An Taisce.

The little woodland, or ‘An Choill Bheag’, will provide the school with an outdoor living classroom, a place where staff and students can connect with biodiversity.

The initiative aims to increase student’s awareness of the many benefits of woodlands and provides a broad understanding of how woodlands play a significant role in our lives and future. Students will also learn the necessary skills to maintain, monitor and study these ecosystems.
