Can you imagine how much of our ecosystem & society relies on this water being clean & healthy?

Come along to Doohamlet and learn about the importance of clean water for biodiversity in our rivers with Dr. Mary Kelly-Quinn, Associate Professor in the School of Biology and Environmental Science at UCD. We’ll have LIVE and preserved samples of the creatures who live in our local waters for you to get up close and personal with!

By the end of the session you will know how we can use the creatures we find in our rivers and streams as a way of figuring out whether our local waters are polluted or not. You will also have a chance to learn about some of the new volunteer groups operating in the area who are interested in protecting and restoring water quality in our communities.
