Urban Ecology: We’ll equip budding young naturalists with a fun scavenger hunt to find urban wildlife around the city and castle grounds.
Suitable for children aged 6-12 (though interested adults might enjoy helping out), learn about the equipment an ecologist might use, fill in your checklist as you explore the city, and bring it back filled in to receive a small prize (while stocks last!)
Education team will be on hand to answer any biodiversity questions.
Event is drop-in, no need to book. Find the Castlecomer Discovery Park Marquee on the Mayor’s Walk right beside the Yulefest Christmas Market on the Parade in Kilkenny city.
Every morning at the same venue you can take part in the Fossil Fun paleontology sessions. Click here to find out more.
