Exciting news from Coillte for Science Week!

Science Week Ireland is an annual week-long event in Ireland each November, celebrating #science in our everyday lives. The #scienceweek programme includes workshops, science shows, talks, laboratory demonstrations, science walks and other science-related events. Science Week 2019 will focus on #climateaction, seeking to help people understand #climatechange, how science and #technology can help us create a positive climate future and the impact we as individuals can have on climate change.

Coillte has kindly donated thousands of #trees to Science Foundation Ireland to be planted during Science Week as part of this year’s Climate Action theme. The trees are a mix of native sapling trees.

• Pedunculate Oak
• Red Oak
• Silver Birch
• Common Birch
• Beech
• Common Alder
• Sycamore
• Grey Willow

As part of the Midlands Science Festival, we will have 1,000 of these #free saplings to give away in advance of Science Week. They must be collected from one central location which we will circulate shortly. If you wish to register your interest in collecting some trees, please email jgorman@midlandsscience.ie. All are welcome to register and applications are particularly welcome from community groups, schools etc who may be able to undertake the planting of a number of trees in various locations around the #midlands #believeinscience
