We are delighted to announce that Cian Gill has joined our team as Education & Public Engagement Manager.
A few words from Cian…
Just a quick note to introduce myself: I’m Cian, the new Education & Public Engagement Manager at Castlecomer Discovery Park. It’s my goal to strengthen and expand on all educational experiences at the park, ensuring that we provide the best in outdoor education, using curriculum-linked plans, and incorporating good ecological practice and outdoor industry ideals. I’m excited to make contacts with schools, teachers, community groups and others who we partner with to make these experiences happen.
My background is in ecology and in delivering outdoor science education, working with the Field Studies Council and Essex Wildlife Trust in the UK, and with Wolf Ridge Environmental Learning Centre in Minnesota. My interests include hiking, wildlife, speaking Irish, history and running, and I’m keen to create new opportunities for learning with groups in the community.
For those who may be interested in getting in touch, you can contact me at Cian@discoverypark.ie.
