Biodiversity Week 2017 

20th - 28th May

Kildare Biodiversity Week starts on Saturday 20st May and runs until Sunday 28th May, starting with a craft workshop in Newbridge library entitled 'Plastic Cities Seen By Birds'.

Biodiversity Week is a great opportunity for people to get out and find out more about nature and wildlife in Kildare. Nearly 30 free events, covering all aspect of Kildare’s natural Heritage, have been organised across Kildare by local wildlife groups, libraries and Tidy Towns groups.

The word 'biodiversity' is coined from biological diversity, is about the variety of plant and animal species and the interaction between them. It is this interaction that is essential for life, giving us all the things we need - clean air, water, agriculture, food and amenity.

The listing of events below has been compiled by Kildare County Council through the Heritage Office. All events are free but some may need to be booked. Please note all school events are fully booked.
