Did you know that the River Slaney once flowed to the sea via Bannow Bay, or that one of the rarest salt marsh habitat types found in Ireland occurs at six different locations at that bay?
These and many other interesting facts about the natural history of the area will be the focus of attention in a forthcoming public lecture on Bannow Bay at Wexford Town Libary by naturalist Jim Hurley.
The many areas that will be highlighted include the underlying bedrocks, the legacy of the last Ice Age, coastal erosion, drainage, soils, nature conservation, wild birds, habitat types, uses of the bay and the Tintern Trails.
The lecture takes place at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 23.
Admission is free, and all are welcome. The library recommends booking in advance by calling (053) 9196760.
