Here at SHARE we are passionate about our natural environment and local heritage, and feel privileged to utilise such a beautiful site on Upper Lough Erne. We are proud to offer a wide range of Environmental Programmes suitable for all ages, from 4 years old to adults. Programmes can be tailored to suit your group’s specific needs and can last from 1 day to a 5 day residential and more.  

Primary Eco-School Workshops

These workshops can be delivered at SHARE or within your school grounds. Schools can select from six different workshop topics, each lasting approx. 1 hour, and support by SHARE ‘Wild Ranger’ Workbook, which each pupil will receive a copy of.

Workshops available:

  • Wildlife
  • Saving Water
  • Recycling/Composting
  • Tiny Life
  • Weather
  • Leave No Trace
  • Healthy Living

All workshops can be tailor to suit individual group needs and to align with the demands of the Eco-Schools Programme.

 

Carbon workshop

These workshops have a focus on Climate change and renewable energies. Fun and interactive sessions that are complementary to the  national curriculum and relevant to the students’ everyday lives.  As an integral part of the workshop your students will go on a guided tour or bicycle pursuit of our Reed-Bed sewage system and see how our wood-pellet boilers, wind  turbines and solar panels all work.  Inspiring discussion of the pros and cons of energy efficiency.    

 

Kingfisher Wildlife Paddle

An adventurous paddle on the tranquil and wildlife diverse Lough Erne canoe trail. Your students will learn basic navigation skills while negotiating the maze of islands on the Upper Lough, learning about and photographing the local biodiversity on the way.

 

Fossil Hunt

Lough Erne is rich with many different fossils. 330 million years ago Ireland was covered by a tropical sea.  

When exploring the islands it is not uncommon to find various fossils on the shore line.  

Why not come on a paddle and use your detective skills to search for preserved shells, corals and crinoids?

 

Camp + Bushcraft

Ray Mears eat your heart out! Learn various wilderness skills, take a trip on the Lough Erne Canoe Trail and spend a night in the Trannish Island Bothy. SHARE can provide equipment for both guided and self-guided camping adventures.

                           

Leave No Trace

The Leave No Trace programme is designed to help young people value the natural environment,  to understand the impact of their activities, and to enable them to make decisions to minise that impact while still enjoying their activities with freedom.

Learn the principles of Leave No Trace, take only photographs, leave only footprints.
