Spring into Heritage Bucket List

Free resources to explore local nature and heritage in your 5K

March has arrived and with it the latest ‘Spring into Heritage’ events and publications from the Heritage office of Wicklow County Council and supported by Healthy Ireland through the ‘Keep Well’ campaign

  • Pick up a free ‘Spring into Heritage’  Bucket List and get outdoors to discover your local 5km. Observing frogspawn,  planting a tree, hearing the dawn chorus or discovering the origins of your local place name are just a few of the  30 ideas to choose from.  Why not take the challenge and see how many of these activities you can tick off the list?
  • The ‘Wildlife in Wicklow Gardens’ poster contains identification tips for many of our common garden wildlife visitors
  • ‘Gardening for Biodiversity’ colouring books, based on the ever-popular publication from Juanita Browne are an ideal way for younger naturalists to learn more about nature on our doorstep.


These publications can be downloaded below or posted on request. The Bucket list is a double sided A4 size sheet (Irish and English versions) and multiple copies can be posted to clubs, schools, and other groups. E- mail 

As always we would love to hear your feedback and observations on Our Wicklow Heritage, the community heritage recording website for county Wicklow, click on the 'contribute' button to send on your stories and photographs.
