The QUB Greens travelled to Downpatrick on Saturday 13th Feb for a Tree Planting day!

On arrival in Downpatrick we were greeted by the South Down Green Party and Cllr Cadogan Enright and given a talk about local campaigns they are involved in.

We visited the Downpatrick Art Gallery which is currently featuring pictures of the beautiful East Down coastline which is being threatened with loosing its designation as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty! For more information on this go to this link - Click here

We then travelled out to Killough were we planted a variety of 60 native trees including Blackthorn, Hazel, Ash, Downy Birch and Beech trees! Mabye in a few years we will revisit the area and see how our trees are getting on! 

Many thanks to those who came along, and to Councillor Cadogan Enright for looking after us for the day!
