CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory in association with Cork Environmental Forum and Engineers Week are running Tree Week events for schools and the general public that celebrate trees as nature’s natural engineers.
On Monday March 6th from 16.00 -17.00 Darragh Murphy, Biologist and Educator, will guide a tree walk from Blackrock Castle Observatory along the tree lined, riverside amenity to the Douglas Estuary and back.
Following the walk a Moon observing session will run from 17.00-18.00. This event is weather permitting and will focus on the first quarter Moon in the early evening sky.
Visitors to Blackrock Castle can also attend a presentation by Sophie Power from the MaREI Centre for Marine and Renewable Energy. Sophie works in the areas of Earth Observation, Climate Change Adaptation and Science Communications. Her presentation will use Earth Observation data visualisations from the European Space Agency and will look at natural land management techniques that can significantly reduce flood risk.
No booking required; this is a free event and open to all.More details Tree Week Events at BCO.
