Welcome to NatureNorthWest ~ Connecting people and communities with their local biodiversity

NatureNorthWest is a nature education provider based in the NorthWest of Ireland.  Catering for any group big or small, old or young, all the biodiversity/variety of nature in the region is explored.

The aim of NatureNorthWest is to show as many people as possible the wonders of the natural world and to encourage people of all ages to develop a connection and love for our incredible biodiversity ~ ultimately ending in stronger community ownership and conservation of our natural world. This is done through delivering workshops, face to face or virtually, walk and talks, radio slots, biodiversity plans, signage and community workshops.


Schools, be it primary, secondary or teacher training courses are a huge part of NatureNorthWests work. Follow this link for information on modules, resources and how to book.
