The Wild woodlands of Ireland are a perfect habitat to create a learning experience for any class. The woodland habitats we have in Ireland are host to our most diverse range of plant and animal species. Woodlands provide us with shelter, clean air, timber and other natural renewable resources.

This interactive learning programme will introduce pupils to the importance of woodland habitats and conservation in their local environment. Students will be encouraged to share and learn their own experiences, to create a sense of responsibility for their local wooded area.
- The woodland as a habitat
