PLEASE NOTE - UPDATE: Jan 2014 - GROUNDWORK WORKCAMPS WILL NOT BE RUNNING THIS SUMMER 2014. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST
Established in 1981, Groundwork is a voluntary environmental organisation, dedicated to the preservation of some of Ireland's most precious habitats.
Those 31 years have seen the growth of Groundwork from a small group of environmentally-concerned Irish students to an organisation attracting like-minded people from all over the world to carry out voluntary work in one of Ireland's most beautiful natural landscapes.
Most of Groundwork’s focus has been on the removal of the invasive Rhododendron ponticum from Killarney National Park, Co. Kerry. Other projects have been tackled including rhododendron clearance work in Glenveagh National Park, Co. Donegal and drain blocking on bogs in the midlands of Ireland.
We hope that you enjoy our website and that, if you haven't already been to a Groundwork workcamp, you will plan to participate in one soon.
If you still have queries about Groundwork after exploring the website, please feel free to email us.
