WEBINAR 15: GREENING OUR CITY - The blue and the red: Discovering the Biodiversity of Cork's Streams Using Citizen Science

We are delighted to continue the very popular Greening Our City Seminar Series online on Tuesday March 29th 2022 at 2.30pm – 4pm  

Local Project – Sustainable Water Network (SWAN) will be presenting on their “Restore Our Waters” campaign

Main Presentation – Catherine Seale, Simon Harrison and Karen Loxton

Interested in learning about Cork’s Blue Infrastructure and Freshwater Resources? This seminar will focus on a new group, the Cork City Freshwater Monitoring Network.

Formed in late 2021, the Network aspires over the next number of year to undertake a sampling programme which will help us to learn about the water quality and biodiversity of Cork’s urban streams using the Citizen Science Stream Index (CSSI). The network is supported by the Local Authority Waters Programme, Cork City Council, Wild Works, Cork Nature Network, Cork Environmental Forum and University College Cork

Discussion will follow both presentations
