Students are taken to the Towers Woodland in Ballysaggartmore where they participate in collecting data about the ecosystem using equipment and methods such as line transects and quadrants.
All the ecology equipment is supplied along with a field-trip workbook that is filled in as the experiments are completed and can be taken back to the classroom to explore the results.
The Towers and Lismore have a fascinating history that enthrals students on their way around and they get a chance to explore the famine folly of The Towers themselves.
Lismore Heritage Centre is offering ecology field-trips including workbook and all equipment to Transition Year, Junior, Senior Cycle students for €12 per student. For more information, please contact Roseanne on +353-58-54975 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
