The science end of the project has been delivered by professional ecologist, Billy Flynn, who has visited the schools and taken the students out on field trips. Local artist, Mike Ahern has closely followed up on the science with work on interpreting what the students have learned of Killorglin’s biodiversity through facilitating a creative and artistic experience. This has been an exciting and dynamic process for the students and the fruits of their labours are forming a community biodiversity Art Exhibition.
Our exhibition is running over the weekend of 9/10 November and everyone is welcome to attend. On the Saturday Frank King will be visiting the venue at 12.30 and talking to us about local birds and at 2pm there will be an adventure event for children, Tree ID, where we will identify and label some of the trees growing in the town. Come along. It will be fun.
