Cabragh Wetlands To Hold Open Day On Sunday

The Cabragh Wetlands Trust are holding their annual “Open Day,” on Sunday next, August 11th, 2013. The Open Day will have the usual range of raffles and sales of everything from cakes, to unique pictures of wetland wildlife, to bird boxes for your garden.

Music
Dario G, ” Sunchyme.”
The Wiggles, “Country Garden.”
Vivaldi “Autumn” (3rd Movement) & “Winter” (1st Movement)

Children’s events begin from 2.00pm to 4.00pm with farm animals to see, creepy-crawlies to observe, together with talks and guided walks by local experts, not to mention a pottery wheel demonstration. Games and races include the traditional Egg & Spoon Race, Sack Races and 3-legged Races, plus plenty more for all of the family to enjoy.

There will also be a Children’s Fancy Dress Show, with the theme “Nature,” so a great turn out of human birds and animals are anticipated.

Donations for the Open Day will be gratefully received, particularly raffle prizes and items for auction. They do ask that items for auction are of good quality; no bric-a-brac please. These items can be left at the Cabragh Wetland Centre any morning, or Telephone 0504-43879  / 086-3179919 to arrange delivery.

This is also the perfect opportunity to understand a bit more about the Cabragh Wetlands Trust, its priorities, its plans for the future and its role both as a conservation body and as an important community development group. You may even be tempted to join their growing membership of experts and volunteers, as they do need your assistance in continuing their efforts in creating a greater awareness of conservation and the appreciation of our natural environment.

    Great clip. Many of the youth of today don’t know what’s out there in the wild.
    Who taught a young swallow how to build a nest under the eve of a house?
    You have to examine it and see the detail that goes into it.

    Many of the ADULTS also don’t know what’s out there in the wild. As in nature, the child learns from the adult. Lovely photography and music. Well done.
