The Biodiversity group was set up in 2009 under the Presidency of John McKiernan.
The objective of the group is to increase awareness of the biodiversity on our golf course among our members, and in doing so to contribute to its protection for the future.
Current activities include the labelling of about 200 of the most interesting trees on the course, the maintenance of these labels and the placement of nesting boxes to encourage birds to breed on the course.
The group works closely with the Gardening group to encourage planting of wild flowers and other plants to encourage insect and bird life.
In order to help appreciation of the diversity of bird life on the course, two dawn chorus walks and two evening chorus walks were held with the assistance of Birdwatch Ireland.
If members are interested in reviving this activity, please talk to any member of the Biodiversity group.
