Burrenbeo Conservation Volunteers (BCV)

The BCV is an active voluntary community that works towards the sustainable management of the Burren by addressing key conservation issues and needs in the region.

The volunteers work on a number of projects and have many more in sight in order to make a valuable impact. Main projects include:

We all know that working in teams can get the job done much faster and this is definitely the case when it comes to scrub clearing, stone wall building, archaeological digs, invasive species mapping, clean coast initiatives… the list goes on. Working as a collective, building a bank of active volunteers and collaborating with other local organisations who share the same vision, has proven to be half the battle when making positive efforts towards conservation locally in the Burren by creating an inclusive environment for people to come together, share their passion for conservation and be part of a growing, energetic and welcoming community.

When it comes to conserving this beautiful Burren landscape, we all have a part to play – we just need to identify it. The power of local communities is a transferable skill which can be experienced the world over and each and every one has something to give.

Everyone is welcome to get involved – the more the better, so come join us – its free, just your time is needed! Events are most suitable for over 18’s, under 18’s must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
