A unique project which charts the flora and fauna of Ramelton has been unveiled via a stunning wildlife map for the entire community.
During lock-down well-known nature expert Aengus Kennedy collaborated with an artist, Robert Vaughan and designer, Sara Sirtoli.
The result is a beautiful guide to all that nature has to offer those who live in the historic town on the shores of the River Lennon.
Aengus explained “We are all residents in Ramelton and love its natural heritage, this time gave us an opportunity to give something back to the community.
“Robert provided illustrations, Sara designs and I did the text. The Ramelton Tidy Town group and the Donegal branch of An Taisce generously covered the cost of printing for the project.
“The maps will be available for free through the various retail outlets in Donegal and larger poster versions will be donated to the local schools when they reopen.
“Ramelton has such a rich natural heritage, with mature woodlands, all the nature that the Lennon supports and the Lennon estuary which hosts so many wintering birds. The map is a nice opportunity for folk to hopefully tune into more of the nature that surrounds us.”
The project is self-financed and donated to the town by Aengus, Robert and Sara with the support of An Taisce – The National Trust for Ireland – Donegal Association and The Ramelton Tidy Towns.Tags:
