2020 Green Flag Pollinator Awards for Parks announced

The Green Flag for Parks Awards 2020 have been announced.

The Green Flag for Parks Pollinator Award is jointly run with An Taisce Environmental Education to support the All Ireland Pollinator Plan, and is kindly sponsored by Young’s Nurseries. There are pollinator awards across different park categories, while Maynooth Campus was the overall winner. This site features not only reduced mowing, wildflower meadows, and pollinator-friendly planting, but Maynooth University grounds staff also make a great effort to educate the public and to promote their efforts through its website and social media.
