Waterways for Wildlife: Vicarstown Barrow Line Biodiversity Survey

Explore the wildlife of the Grand Canal Barrow Line. Combining an indoor presentation and canal side fieldtrip, you will learn how to identify and record the biodiversity found along the canal.

This event will provide training in bee and butterfly identification and canal natural heritage recording. It will consist of an indoor presentation followed by an outdoor fieldtrip. We will survey a section of the canal for native trees, aquatic life, pollinators, and other wildlife. Dress for the outdoors and wear comfortable footwear.
