20 schools based in County Limerick have already signed up to the Learning about Forests programme.

This year, An Taisce aims to work with approximately 30 schools in County Limerick, so there are still 10 places available to interested and enthusiastic schools.

Each school will receive and introductory visit and a LEAF pack from An Taisce. Following the initial visits, schools will decide which LEAF Theme they will work on for the coming school year and begin researching the topic with the help and guidance of the LEAF Team.

During the school year, each school will have the opportunity to avail of a school based workshop and site visit to Curragh Chase Forest Park. All activities will be connected to their chosen LEAF Theme and linked with the school curriculum.

The Learning about Forests Team is very much looking forward to engaging with these schools!
