Eco Club participate in Woodland Management event in Falls Park

As part of their on-going commitment to the local environment the Eco club attended an event in Falls Park on Wednesday, led by Belfast City Council, where students had the opportunity to assist the council in woodland management, coppicing hazel trees on-site. They cut off branches which were then used to create a ‘dead hedge’ which serves as a sound and pollution buffer to the adjacent Falls road and provides much needed habitat for insects and small mammals such as hedgehogs. They also cut and decorated some willow discs which are an ideal eco-friendly tree decoration and will be available at the St Dominic’s Christmas Bazaar. The group also toasted marshmallows over the open fire, sure why not!
