Have a really wild spring day at Gortin Glen Forest Park

You can have a really wild spring day at Gortin Glen Forest Park on Sunday 21st April, when the park comes alive with fun games and activities for all the family.  From 1pm to 4pm you can drop in and take part in all the free wildlife themed activities taking place and why not bring a picnic to make a day of it.

This year, our annual spring day is bigger and better with more things to do and see.  Spring is a great time to get out and watch wildlife.  Why not come along and see what you can spot on your walk around the park.  As part of the Biodiversity Games project, we encourage you to record what wildlife you see and report it to the Omagh Biodiversity Officer.  It could be the first call of the cuckoo, lapwings or curlew breeding in local wetlands, a hedgehog emerging from hibernation or many of the colourful dragonflies and butterflies that make Omagh their home.

This event is part of the Biodiversity Games project, supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, ‘Your Heritage’ Programme in partnership with eight biodiversity officers which aim to get people involved in helping their local biodiversity.
