Farming & Wildlife Talk

Michael Martyn, agri-environment consultant, will deliver a talk on how nature conservation often requires specialised farming techniques to thrive.

Clara Bog Visitor Centre

26th November 2014 at 7:00 pm

Working as an agricultural advisor Michael has seen the changes in Irish farming practices over the past 50 years that have resulted in an alarming loss of biodiversity. Michael believes conservation and modern agriculture can work in harmony together to the benefit of the farmer and the environment. With over 15 years’ experience as a conservation planner, Michael will speak about some of the Midland’s most successful conservation projects. Information on the new GLAS scheme will also be available. There is no charge to attend the talk.
