What you'll do

An urban habitat in a city

This is a talk around one of our projects, Beaumont Quarry, which we manage with the Cork City Council. It is an old, disused limestone quarry that ceased operation in the 1960s. It was left to its devices and provides a good habitat for calcareous grassland species within an urban area. We'll venture along the quarry floor and follow with a spectacular view of the city from the top part of the quarry. After the talk, we will be undertaking conservation work such as a bramble bash and clean up. Details of the task on the day is given at www.corknaturenetwork.ie. Please bring warm suitable clothing. Contact us for further information on the Beaumont Quarry Facebook page or at contact@corknaturenetwork.ie
