CEFF Project: Hands on Heritage: Landscapes and Riverscapes

Row the Erne will lead a pilot project to engage students (11-14 years) from 4 local schools with their natural and built heritage on Upper Lough Erne. Each school will get the opportunity to spend a day on the water rowing the Menapian currach and paddling canoes, as well as participating in biodiversity and heritage workshops. This will give students a chance to experience and connect with their landscape, creating a legacy of understanding, respect and appreciation of their local heritage.

The aim of this project is to create a blueprint for this partnership that can be replicated and expanded for future School programmes. It is to give young people a love of, and connection to, their landscape and local history that they will carry into their adult lives.

The project is being delivered in partnership with the Erne Paddlers and Waterways Ireland.
