Dublin Mountain Initiative - Adopt a forest -
The following may be of interest to individuals and the invitation seems broad enough for MV members to go. The meeting is being organised by the DMI, who in my view are a valuable, user-community driven group.

Subject: 'Adopt a Forest meeting - Thursday 4th March - 7.30 - Larch Hill

Hi all,

This meeting is now confirmed for the time and location above.

I think this should be a 'Village Hall' type meeting - in otherwise please bring along as many people as you can - representatives from individual clubs etc. I have also invited Conor Devane, the Coillte Area Manager to give their perspective on what would work from their side of things.

My rough idea would be:-

a) A club / sport takes responsibility for a forest / area. (preferably where they normally do their thang!)

b) They have a relationship with a couple of local scout troops (conditional, at this stage, on SI being agreeable to this) - 'point' people are appointed on each side.

c) Quarterly they set up work days - having first cleared it with Coillte (felling etc!)

d) Every now and then everyone goes out for pints ..........

You get the general idea .........

Just my tuppence - all improvements / alternatives welcome .........

Please do bring along as many as possible - it would be great to get a lot of the detail thrashed out in one go.

Thanks,

Mark
