The committee of the Shannon Town Community Wetland have had their first post Covid open air meeting at the wetlands on Thursday last. A draft Biodiversity and Management report commissioned by Clare County Council regarding the wetlands was the focus of discussion. The report gives us a good baseline indication of the current biodiversity and is crucial to planning for the future management of the wetlands. Of note are two rare plants which were identified during the survey. These are Bristly Oxtongue and the Celery Leaved Buttercup. Also decided was to plan for two Heritage Week projects this year. These are a family fun day on Water Heritage Day on Sunday 23rd August when children will become nature detectives and a short video about the wetland restoration project. To ensure that government recommendations about outdoor events can be adhered to it will be necessary to register for the event. We will shortly post information about registration.
