Got an hour to help the environment?
Cork Nature Network is running a clean-up in Beaumont Quarry this Saturday, January 28th and they’re looking for volunteers to give them a hand from 11am until 12.30pm.
“The end of winter is a great time to get in there to clear litter and cut back bramble and old man’s beard.” said a spokesperson for the group.
“Our efforts help the unique native flora of this site to thrive and provide valuable habitat to a range of animals and insects.”
Enthusiastic volunteers are needed to help collect litter and cut back invasive flora and bramble from the old abandoned limestone quarry, which lies adjacent to Pairc Uí Rinn and Temple Hill.
It’s a fine way to get some exercise in the great outdoors and you might even make some new mates while you’re at it.
“If you have an hour or two to spare, please book your place and meet by the green area near the Beaumont Quarry sign on Beaumont Drive,” they added.
Rakes, gloves, loppers, bin bags, and litter pickers will be provided, as well as tea and coffee and biscuits.
