About the Event

It’s Red Squirrel Week again and Fermanagh and Omagh District Council has joined forces once more with Forest Service Northern Ireland to offer a fun afternoon for the family at Gortin Glen Forest Park on Sunday 4th October 2015.  Come along to this free event to learn more about our furry native red squirrels and autumn in the park.

Drop in to the education classroom between 2pm and 4pm to take part in our pop up red squirrel trail, get creative with indoor art, and again we want you to help us map where you have seen red and grey squirrels recently on our Reds Endangered (RED) Map.  If you are lucky, you might even spot our visiting giant red squirrel, Cyril!

If you are interested in learning more about red squirrel conservation, want to report red squirrel sightings or need more information about the event, then contact the Fermanagh and Omagh Biodiversity Officer, on 0300 303 1777, or email julie.corry@fermanaghomagh.com.

This is a partnership event between Fermanagh and Omagh District Council and Forest Service Northern Ireland.  Gortin Glen is a state forest, managed by the Northern Ireland Forest Service.
