IWT Dublin Branch’s January outing occurs on Sunday January 7th. We are most fortunate to have a birdwatch outing led by John Fox. Those of you who bought the book on Dublin Bay by, among others, Richard Nairn, who gave our December talk will know that John is the main photographer of that volume, so the outing should be spectacular. We meet on the causeway at 12 noon. Remember – dress warmly.
On Sunday 15th April, the Laois/Offaly branch of the IWT is inviting the public to meet Zoologist and Amphibian Expert Collie Ennis at 12 noon in Abbeyleix Heritage House before heading to Abbeyleix Bog in search of frogs and newts. This event is suitable for young & old alike and is family friendly. Its a free event but donations to the branches conservation work always welcome.
