QUB GREENS PLANT 60 NATIVE TREES!
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!

We are the branch of the Young Greens and Green Party at Queens University.
The Green Party is the only party that unashamedly puts people and planet before profit and power. We are progressive and democratic, and work for social equality, ecological stability and protecting the planet and human rights. The Green mantra "Think global, act local" emphasises our dedication to grassroots organisation in small local areas - such as QUB.
The Green movement is one of the biggest political movements on earth - www.greens.org
