Button parks

There are no public nature reserves in Co Cavan as far as I know

nature reserves def.  Noun:A tract of land managed so as to preserve its flora, fauna, and physical features
Button parks are an idea from Richard Louv from the US. as he describes the idea himself “remember the special place in nature that you had as a child—that wooded lot at the end of the cul de sac, that ravine behind your housing tract? What if adults had cared just as much about that special place as you did, when you were a child?”

“The creation of nearby-nature trusts.” Land trust organizations could develop and distribute tool kits, and perhaps offer consulting services, to show how neighborhood residents could band together to protect those small green parcels of nearby nature. What might these little parcels be called? How about ” button parks?”

Button parks are for people of course but people need nature.
