Lismore Heritage Centre is pleased to announce The Lismore Ecology Fieldtrip Study for secondary school students in line with the Biology curriculum.
The Towers Woodland in Ballysaggartmore is where the students participate in collecting data about the ecosystem using equipment and methods such as line transects and quadrates. All the ecology equipment is supplied along with a fieldtrip workbook that is filled in as the experiments are completed and can be taken back to the classroom to explore the results.
Second year student from Meanscoil San Niochlás, Ring, completed the fieldtrip on Friday 24th April. They spent a very enjoyable morning doing completing the Ecology Study at the Towers in Ballysaggartmore. The Towers has a fascinating history that enthrals students on their way around and they get a chance to explore the famine folly for themselves. There is also a permanent orienteering course at the tower and maps are available at Lismore Heritage Centre for those who wish to complete this course.
While Second year students were out gathering information the first year students enjoyed the Lismore CSI and Gut of Digestion Workshops at Lismore Heritage Centre. A great day was had by all students and teachers.
