The Burrenbeo Trust is a membership charity, set up to create a greater appreciation of the Burren region.
This is carried out through providing heritage education to adults and youths through the Ecobeo programme and the growing group of Burrenbeo Conservation Volunteers, information through various mediums (the Burren most used website; www.burrenbeo.com, the development of an award-winning CD, guided walks, lecture series amongst other things), and supports research on the future sustainable management of the Burren region.

It is an inclusive, membership-based organisation dedicated to the conservation of the Burren.
