Emerald Heritage ‘Go Green’ St. Patrick’s Day
(Island of Ireland) Emerald Heritage was formed by Irish people and for the Irish people in response to the erosion of both Ireland’s landscape and aspects of the shared culture. Today, Emerald Heritage, is now calling on the global Irish family to ‘Go Green’ this St. Patrick’s Day, March 17, 2017 and turn Ireland into the Emerald Isle once again! The primary goal for Emerald Heritage is the protection and enhancement of the Irish landscape.
Ireland is the least wooded country in Europe with just 1% of the native woodland remains. Centuries of unchecked development has resulted in this devastating statistic and unless something is done the landscape, together with the plants, birds, and animals that call it home, will be lost forever. “Our country is crying out, and we are running out of time….We refuse to rely on Governments grants or donations, preferring instead to involve the community at large. It is in our blood and culture - If we Irish see something that needs to be done, we just do it! Now, is the time for the Irish community to stand together…said founder and entrepreneur Lyn Nelson
Emerald Heritage’s unwavering commitment to this goal has led to the creation of the souvenir plot scheme. Pulling our resources to purchase land in the Glens Of Antrim set about to safeguard the natural beauty of the island. After much demand and to help Irish families act and reconnect with the land they love Emerald Heritage recently introduced the chance to purchase family plots dedicated to the legacy and heritage of the land.
Just a stone’s throw from Emerald Heritage land you’ll find the ethereal Dark Hedges, Cushendun Caves and Ballintoy Harbour, home of the Iron Islands, amongst many more scenes and locations. It also happens to be the official home of HBO’s world famous Game of Thrones TV series with many major filming locations found in the surrounding area.
ABOUT Emerald Heritage: Emerald Heritage’s vision is to have hundreds of acres of protected woodland that can leave an indelible mark, creating a natural wonderland of woodland trails for everyone to enjoy. Emerald Heritage was developed in response to the crisis and the need to raise much needed funds to purchase, conserve and restore the Irish land.
ABOUT Lyn Nelson: "To cut a long (centuries old) story short, we are trying to protect and enhance Ireland’s beautiful landscape.” Lyn Nelson was born and raised on the north coast of Ireland. More than a decade ago, Lyn first came to learn about this serious situation, facing the native Irish woodlands, and how deforestation over hundreds of years, have impacted so dramatically the landscape. “I have travelled extensively and always been struck by the legions of people who were immensely proud of their Irish heritage. I believe that Emerald Heritage can give direction to that Irish pride, to provide an opportunity to play an active role in preserving the homeland that is special to many.”
