This 22-page booklet is a compilation of the wildlife of Merlin Park Woods researched, photographed and recorded in Merlin Park Woods over a 7-year period.
The initial printing was funded through Local Agenda 21 and the photographs and design time have been given freely.
On the day, Friends of Merlin Woods will have a suggested donation of 2 euro that will go towards reprinting more copies.
Over the years Friends of Merlin Woods have worked on ways to raise the awareness of this area as a Biodiversity Haven
in Galway showing why it needs protecting in the future.
Numerous methods are used through arts, drama, conservation projects, biodiversity and heritage events
to raise that awareness.
This booklet will add greatly to this work.
The launch will also coincide with the start of Biodiversity Week.
Friends of Merlin Woods have a number of events coming up that week for you all to enjoy.
