December ESD Newsletter Competition – Win a Visit to a National Parks for your Class
Ireland’s National Parks provide unique opportunities to be at one with nature; the purest of experiences in nature giving emotions of awe, wonderment, feelings of connectedness and peacefulness. See https://www.nationalparks.ie/ for your nearest National Park.

With a strong focus on conservation, biodiversity and sustainability, there are events tailored to all ages and interests. Events include guided walks, nature trails, nature-inspired art competitions, insect hunts, bird-spotting challenges, and many more. Guided walks and hikes take place across all the parks, in addition to park-specific events such as stargazing, regular nature based walks, talks and workshops.
