Heritage Week 2017

Thanks to the assistance of SECAD’s wildwork team and the Waters and Communities office we are running two events as part of Heritage Week this year:


Wednesday, August 23, 7pm: Meet the Aliens!
Discover the alien species of trees and plants that live in Ballybrack Woods (the Mangala). Where they came from, what’s interesting about them and how we can help prevent unwelcome spreading…This event will also provide a great opportunity to learn about the history of the woodland and how to help nature in your community.Meet at Douglas Community Centre, Church Road at 7pm

Sunday, August 27, 10am-1pm: Ask the insects
Community Water Officer for Cork, Kieran Murphy, will be on hand to demonstrate how to survey for and identify aquatic invertebrates, which can indicate if a river or stream is healthy.

Four sessions:
10am – 10:30am
10:45am – 11:15am
11:45am – 12:15am
12:30pm – 1pm

Meet outside Douglas Community Centre, Church Road
