The  Friends of Silvermine Nature Area have a varied and vibrant Activities programme centered around walks  in wilderness areas in the Far south Peninsula.   These walks are lead by locals with a wonderful depth of knowledge of the area. Although a basic level of fitness is required the focus is on exploring and enjoying both the outdoors and good company.  National Environmental Action days such as Arbour Day,  Coastal Clean-up Day, Marine Week and Big Bird Day are also celebrated with an outing in Nature.   

*NB: IF WEATHER IS DOUBTFUL THE MORNING OF THE WALK PLEASE PHONE THE CONVENOR between 6:30 and 7:00am TO FIND OUT IF WALK IS CANCELLED.
