Big turn out for Walk on the Wildside

Post date: Apr 26, 2010 7:36:44 PM

Despite the odd shower, the Walk on the Wildside last Sunday was a great success with approximately 100 visitors turning up to get a guided tour of Abbeyleix Bog. Wildlife experts Fiona MacGowan and Doug McMillan were on hand to explain and demonstrate the bog’s fascinating range of flora and fauna and nets and trays were available for the many young nature detectives keen to sample the mini- beasts of the bog pools.
