Come and explore the biodiversity of our Ballast Pit!
Join Charlie and Marion Heasman on this stroll through the Ballast Bit, starting at the Bottle Bank on Barnageeragh Road.
We’ll explore the Ballast Pit looking not only at bumblebees but also learning about why it is such an incredible natural resource.
For instance, there are 100 different species of wild bee in Ireland and 70% of them have been recorded here. There are rare pyramidal orchids, the very rare Small Blue Butterfly and lots more.
Come and see for yourself!
Free, but please secure a space for yourself on Eventbrite – do so in good time as numbers are limited!
