|Kinvara Scout Group||28th Galway Kinvara scouts will be resuming in September and are looking forward to an active scout year. With nearly 90 youth members, both boys and girls, from age 6 to 19 years old. Beavers, ( 6-8yrs), meet on Fridays; cubs (9-11yrs) on Mondays, scouts (12-15yrs) on Wednesday evenings all in Kinvara Community Centre. Ventures (15-17yrs) and Rovers (18+) meet on Wednesdays in Kilcornan. Scouting is about developing young people to be independent, balanced, confident and responsible adults with problem solving skills. Scouting involves learning by doing, working in teams, youth leadership, lots of fun and of course outdoor adventures, such as hillwalking, backwoods, orienteering, pioneering, paddling and camping. All of our sections went on camps this summer and had a blast. Annual scout registration for all sections will take place at KCC on 9th Sept at 18.30. If new youth members are interested please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to see if there is space in the relevant section. New members, even in older sections do not need any scouting experience. We are also recruiting new adult leaders as we cannot run an effective programme without volunteers. No scout experience is necessary as training is provided. Naturally, all adults working with young people must undergo Garda vetting.|

|2019 Coastwatch Ireland Survey||Volunteers needed |
Coastwatch Ireland survey runs between 15th September and 15th October and very much needs volunteers for the Co. Clare area.
The Coastwatch Survey is designed to give an overview of the state of the coast. It involves volunteers from all walks of life checking their chosen 500m stretch of coast (survey unit), or multiple units, once around low tide, and jotting observations down on the survey questionnaire while on the shore. Data is then collected and pooled to provide a snapshot of the state of the coast in the areas surveyed at that time.The Coastwatch survey was born in 1987 and has adapted over time with updates from paper maps to modern GIS and alignment to EU water law like the MSFD, WFD, Waste and Nature law. It takes in several countries all around Europe, with some common base questions that are identical and can be pooled for an European report.
This is an important tool for environmental organisations, providing information on the health, or otherwise, of the coastal areas and it would be great to have as much of the coast covered as possible.
The Coastwatch website provides background information, forms and is marked with interactive sections of the coast that can be booked online.
