Dublin’s Longest Nature Trail – Explore the Grand Canal

Apr 17
May 26, 2018 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm

On Saturday, May 26th, the Dublin Branch of the IWT will hold a Biodiversity walk on the Grand Canal, as part of Ireland’s Biodiversity week. Larry Gordon, of the Grand Canal group, will lead us on a walk along the canal, lasting about 90 minutes and starting at 4 p.m. at Dolphin’s Barn Bridge. The Canal is a wonderful artery of wildlife from central Ireland right into our capital city, and Larry will explore and explain this flow of biodiversity traffic. For Decades bats, birds, otter and fish all use the Grand Canal to find food and navigate within our urban landscape. It is still and essential biodiversity habitat for Dublin City and well worth exploring this Biodiversity Week.

MEETING POINT: Dolphin’s Barn Bridge, Dublin  TIME: 16:00 – 17:00
