BOGLAND: Exploring Life and Landscape

As part of the new BOGLAND project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, An Creagán is embarking on a conservation project to restore some important wetland habitats surrounding its visitor centre, situated in the foothills of the Sperrins near Omagh, Co. Tyrone.
The project will offer new volunteering opportunities for those interested in doing hands-on conservation work, bringing the bog and surrounding wetland areas back into prime condition and making them a better habitat for the declining populations of wetland plants and animals. The result will be a better visitor experience for those interested in getting better acquainted with the Sperrin flora and fauna, which can often be elusive and difficult to appreciate.
If you are interested in coming along to the volunteering events please contact the project officer to register your interest at biodiversity@ancreagan.com. Volunteers will also be given training and recreational opportunities as part of this new project.
