This was the question that led me to set up Laois Outdoor Education. The idea was and is simple: get people (young, old and in between) into nature to give them time out to re-connect and discover.
My name is Edel Heeran. I am an environmental science graduate with an MSc in Environmental Management.
I'm concerned about the impact of global warming and a rapidly shrinking biodiversity on my own children's lives. I'm passionate about our environment and see education as the most important weapon we have in combating environmental degradation.
The workshops I run aim to be fun and to inspire wonder. They're not only for schools and children, but for all nature-lovers, including families and groups, such as walking groups, photographers and Tidy Towns; anybody wishing to learn a bit more about the great outdoors.
