The next county event for Beavers is the County Trails Day on Sunday February 12th in Curraghchase Forest Park from 11.00pm until 1.30.pm. It will involve a track/trail walk, which will incorporate five bases along the trail
As it is an outdoor event so Beavers are asked to dress appropriately so as not to get cold/wet. The following gear is required:
Small day bag

The barrier at the entrance to the forest will be raised for half an hour before the event and for half an hour at the end. Anyone arriving after these slots will have to pay the five euro admission fee.
The event costs €3 per Beaver and this must be paid next Monday. You must also confirm your son’s attendance by text to Barry by next Friday 3rd February.
