MI: Celebration Ireland's mountain environmen
Date: 26-28/05/2017
Venue: Cappanalea OETC, Killorgin. Co. Kerry
To coincide with National Biodiversity Week, Mountaineering Ireland is hosting a weekend celebration of Irelandís mountain environment, based at Cappanalea Outdoor Education & Training Centre, Killorglin, Co. Kerry from 26th to 28th May 2017.

The overall aim of the Mountain Environment weekend is to celebrate what makes Irelandís mountains special, by sharing knowledge of the mountain environment through illustrated talks, and by spending time exploring the mountains and discussing what we see and hear.

Rather than focusing on a single aspect of the mountain environment such as geology or plants, this weekend will promote understanding of natureís interconnectedness by involving people from different disciplines such as botany, biology, ornithology, geography and geology. Consideration will also be given to how best to protect the special qualities of Irelandís mountains and upland areas.

The event is delivered in conjunction with Cappanalea OETC, Killarney National Park Education Centre, and the MacGillycuddy Reeks Mountain Access Forum, with input from a number of individuals with expertise on different aspects of the mountain environment.

This event is intended for: environmental officers within Mountaineering Ireland clubs; mountain training 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.
