These training courses are being organised by the Biodiversity Steering Group and Clare County Council, with funding from the Heritage Council. The courses will be delivered by Keville & O'Sullivan Associates Ltd of Galway. One of the actions in the Clare Heritage Plan 2003-2007 is to develop a Local Biodiversity Action Plan, and Clare is one of the first counties in Ireland to start this process. These training sessions contribute to public awareness raising of and involvement in the conservation of biodiversity, which is one of the main aims of a Local Biodiversity Action Plan.
