National Parks & Wildlife Service in conjunction with “Galway Living Bog” welcomes you to Wetlands Day – We would love to see you at this year’s event exploring all that Carrownagappul bog has to offer. We will start at the Galway Living Bog Centre,  H53 TN67 Castlegar, (near Mountbellew) Co. Galway at 1pm with a 1 hour presentation on the bog’s ecology, hydrology, restoration measures, flora, fauna etc. We will then travel a short distance to the bog itself for a guided walk.

Carrownagappul Bog SAC, adjacent to the Galway town of Mountbellew, is one of the biggest SACs and one of the largest examples of remaining, restorable active raised bog in Ireland. Measuring 850 acres it contains fine examples of raised bog habitat and species, and between 2016 – 2020 it is one of 12 raised bogs nationwide that will be restored under a European funded LIFE project: ‘The Living Bog’.

All are welcome and we look forward to see you there!
