Little Hedgehogs Come Out to Play!
Castlebar, Co. Mayo
24 July 2021
Join Elaine O'Riordan from the Irish Hedgehog Survey team at the National University of Ireland, Galway for this special event taking another look into the lives of our most loved wild animals.

Elaine will help you explore the busy schedule of young hoglets as they venture into the hedgerows and woodlands for the very first time and what you can do to help.

Afterwards, award-winning artist, filmmaker and puppeteer, Carmel Balfe, will perform a short show about one little hoglet on its first adventures. Next, Carmel will lead an art workshop on how to create your own puppets and tell your own stories.

This event will be streamed on the museum's Youtube Channel and on Facebook Live from 14:00 to 15:00 on Saturday 24 July. See museum website for details.

Readers are advised to check with the venue before relying on the details published here.
