Ken Whelan’ s Freshwater Detective Course October / November 2017

September 5th, 2017 | by

This very popular series will again be available in UCD this autumn.  It forms an ideal introduction for the new Atlantic Salmon Trust – Small Streams Characterisation System Course (http://www.atlanticsalmontrust.org/small-streams-course/).

Following last week’s very well attended “taster class” you would be well advised to book early as places are limited!

Classroom based course, with three Field Trips

Freshwater Detectives

Freshwater Detectives

Ireland has a rich abundance of rivers and lakes. This course will examine this unique resource: its sources and origin, its contribution to biological diversity and its importance for the landscape and for humans. The course will teach students the basics of becoming a Freshwater Detective and how, using the presence or absence of specific insects or fish, to read a river corridor or lake shore and to detect the presence of key predators such as otter and mink. The course will comprise six talks and three field visits.
