Wetlands are an area of land that is saturated with water either permanently or seasonally, and where the water table is near or at the surface. These wetlands are home to a large diversity of plant and animal species and form an important network of ecological sites for many species on migration.
This event will explore the wetland area of Tramore Valley Park. This will be a guided walk by Cork Nature Network who will highlight the animals and plants which can be found within the park’s wetland area. The walk will cover the importance of wetlands for biodiversity and how everyone can help in managing Irish Biodiversity through citizen science platforms such as the National Biodiversity Data Centre and Citizen Science Stream Index.
Bring suitable footwear for wet ground and a pair of binoculars, if you have them!
Location: Tramore Valley Park (Half Moon Lane entrance), South Link Road, T12 AE86 Cork
