About the Event

Join Forage Ireland and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council for a unique walk to explore the lakeside habitats and forage for the natural wonders growing on the shores of Lough Erne.

This fun foray led by Dermot Hughes, expert in all things wild, will teach you about the wild food growing in our midst and the array of wildflowers and native trees that make Lough Erne their home.  Dermot’s expertise goes beyond identifying and picking wild food, he has a wealth of tips and knowledge on how to prepare and cook them too.  So come along with plenty of questions, a camera and notebook!

The free guided walk is part of an initiative funded by Waterways Ireland Heritage Grants Programme and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, to raise awareness of the biodiversity lives along the shores of Lough Erne.  Helping to deliver both the Waterways Ireland Heritage Plan and Fermanagh and Omagh Local Biodiversity Action Plan, this event will be followed up with small wildlife improvement projects with local communities.

To book a limited place (first come first served), please contact Julie Corry, Biodiversity Officer at 03003031777 or by email on julie.corry@fermanaghomagh.com.  You will receive further information on meeting points etc.  If you would like to find out more about biodiversity and free events similar to these in the Fermanagh and Omagh district area, please also contact the biodiversity officer.
