Venue: Clonbur, Co. Galway

The Ecology of Mountains – Mountaineering Ireland’s Mountain Environment Weekend 2019 

Booking is now open for The Ecology of Mountains, Mountaineering Ireland's Mountain Environment Weekend 2019, which takes place in Clonbur, Co. Galway from 24th - 26th May 2019.  

This event will help participants recognise how all the elements of an upland landscape connect and intertwine, leading to a deeper understanding of how this type of ecosystem works. It also helps us as hillwalkers and climbers to understand the fragility and resilience of anything that survives on Irish mountains, and to appreciate how a lack of understanding can disturb the delicate balance within upland environments.

The Mountain Environment Weekend is intended for: Environmental Officers within Mountaineering Ireland clubs; Mountain Training Board Ireland providers; hillwalking club leaders; walking guides and other Mountaineering Ireland members with an interest in learning about the mountain environment and sharing that knowledge with others. To ensure that as many people as possible have the opportunity to benefit from the learning that will flow from this event it would be preferable not to have more than two people from any one club.

Event fee of €80 includes: field trips; talks; farm visit and a three-course dinner with tea/coffee on the Saturday evening). For programme and additional details, including accommodation options, see our information pack here, online booking here.

The event is delivered in conjunction with the Outdoor Education programme at GMIT Mayo, Petersburg Outdoor Education Centre, and Joyce Country and Western Lakes Geo Enterprise, with input from additional individuals with expertise on different aspects of the mountain environment.
