Outdoor Adventures at Crom
Crom is a haven for wildlife and rare plants, so we’re taking the opportunity to celebrate our natural diversity! Come along on Sunday 1 July to join in with lots of nature activities, talks and tours at Crom.
There'll be plenty of opportunities for wildlife spotting on talks and tours, nature craft activities and more as these special creatures and nature help us determine the health of our natural environment and there are many varieties to be found at Crom!
Get involved with our nature themed children’s crafts and have a go at making your own wildlife home to take away. Our facepainters will be on site to turn your little ones into little animals! Our very own rangers will be teaching you some bushcraft and wild survival techniques whilst demonstrating tips for staying safe in nature.
Browse the range of gifts, nature books and camping accessories in the Visitor Centre and enjoy a range of lunches, hot food and treats from the Little Orchard Tea-room, whose speciality is home baking.
Our friends in conservation will be on site including Butterfly Conservation and the Fermanagh Red Squirrel Group. Have a chat and find out more about the work they do and how you can help be a part of it. The RSBP will be giving a talk on the importance of preserving the special habitat in Fermanagh. Our rangers who enjoy working in this truly special place for nature will be leading woodland walks throughout the day, including a special historical trees tour!
We haven’t forgotten the water! Lough Erne Heritage are bringing their racing cots, so there’ll be plenty of opportunities to have a go and hear more about the work their group does to preserve the significant history of Lough Erne. We will also have a special visit from the crew from our local RNLI Station, one of two stations based on Lough Erne in County Fermanagh!
Details of each activitiy and timings throughout the day will be on display upon arrival outside of the Visitor Centre.
