BioBlitz in St. Annes Park June 8th

24 May 2013

On Saturday June 8th the Lord Mayor Of Dublin will launch a ‘BioBlitz’ as part of a National event held in association with the National Biodiversity Data Centre.

The event will be held in St Anne’s Park and the North Bull Island Biosphere on 7th June (5.30pm - 10pm ) and 8th June (8am - 5.30pm).

BioBlitz aims to get people out to explore nature and discover a wide range of species of flora and fauna in their locality.

BioBlitz is annual event raising biodiversity awareness for beginners and experts alike. It is a challenge where people identify and record as many species of flora and fauna as possible over a 24 hour period on 7th and 8th June.

There are some planned walks and talks that will take place throughout the event which will provide families and young people in particular with an opportunity to become involved in the fun of the count challenge.

There will also be some free activities for families throughout the day to illustrate the habitats and biodiversity at the two locations and the importance of flora and fauna in providing us with recreational activities and what nature does for us.

St Anne’s Farmers Market and the Red Stable Café will be open as usual for the purchase of snacks and refreshments during the event.

Picnics welcome. Area provided.
