Laois/Offaly Branch

The Irish Wildlife Trust Laois/Offaly Branch aims to promote wildlife and habitat conservation locally and the positive use and enjoyment of natural heritage within the two counties. It aims to do this through regular fun events throughout the year for young and old alike and for wildlife enthusiasts of all levels. These events include a mix of talks, walks and other activities as well as a dedicated local Badger Club for the kids.

Laois and Offaly has some of the most spectacular natural features and wildlife in Ireland. This rolling landscape has a myriad of different habitats including some of the best examples of raised and blanket bogs in Europe, a variety of different farmland types which are crisscrossed by hedgerows and tree lines, native woodland, majestic rivers and streams, urban gardens and many more. These habitats are home to some truly inspirational wildlife characters from the peregrine falcon and the Irish hare in our mountains right down to the cheeky robin in our gardens. By spreading the IWT’s message to both young and old in Laois and Offaly we hope to preserve and enhance all this for many generations to come.

Our branch was set up in November 2013 and is run entirely on a voluntary basis. We have a small but dedicated committee that is always open to new members and ideas.
