Discover the Biodiversity of Forthill Park

Published: 8th May 2015

Celebrate International Biodiversity Day by taking part in a biodiversity treasure hunt around Forthill Park, Enniskillen on Thursday 21st May, between 12 noon and 3pm.

Biodiversity is the variety of life found on earth, from bumblebees and butterflies in your local park to the rare birds and plants of a raised bog. Forthill Park is a wonderful example of an urban park that is home to magnificent trees, garden birds, solitary bees and much more.  Pop along anytime between 12 noon and 3pm to take part in our children’s biodiversity treasure hunt, and you too might learn a bit more about the wildlife that lives in your neck of the woods.  The starting and information point will be at the bandstand, near Cole’s Monument.

We will also be asking for your views on the new Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Biodiversity Action Plan that is currently being developed.  This is a great opportunity for you to have a say in what natural heritage features you feel should be celebrated and promoted in the new action plan.  More consultation on the Fermanagh and Omagh District Council Biodiversity Action Plan will take place over the coming months.

For more information on this event and on the Biodiversity Action Plan, please contact the Council’s Biodiversity Officer by email at julie.corry@fermanaghomagh.com or by phone at 0300 303 1777.

Enniskillen has scooped the prestigious title of Ireland's Best Large Urban Centre 2013 in Ireland's Best Kept Towns competition. Forthill Bandstand, erected in 1895, is one of Fermanagh's gems, located at Forthill Park, Enniskillen.
