South Clew Bay Nature Forum

South Clew Bay Nature Forum was founded in 2017, is based in Louisburgh and welcomes all who have an interest in nature to join! 

Click here for info on the Spark Change Challenge – a series of workshops in Summer/Autumn 2019 on creating a sustainable community.

Our mission is to promote and encourage an active interest in the natural environment and foster positive attitudes towards biodiversity.

  • We wish to assist the local community in taking a proactive approach to environmental preservation and sustainability.
  • We hope to bring together an active group of people that share a common interest in the local environment and enjoy sharing fun experiences and knowledge out and about in the beautiful place we have chosen to live.
