About this event

Cork Nature Network is delighted to offer a guided walk along the Cork City Otter Trail on Saturday 10th June at 11:00 am. as part of this year’s Harbour Festival.

Join us for a fascinating talk and walk led by Cork Nature Network's Campaign Manager John Armstrong. John will talk about otter ecology, the importance of the River Lee for the otters and why we should protect them.

This walk is part of our ongoing Otter Project. You can find out more about our Otter Project here.

Our speaker:

John Armstrong has a degree in Ecology from UCC and has a special interest in science education, the marine and water issues in Ireland. He is the campaigns manager for CNN and represents CNN on the board of SWAN (Sustainable Waters Network.) John works in the education department of Fota Wildlife Park and as a consultant ecologist. He is a mentor for the All Atlantic Ocean Youth Ambassadors.

The meeting point will be in front of the Opera House.

The whole walk will take around an hour and a half and will finish in Fitzgerald's park. Please allow additional time if you need to make your way back into the city centre after the walk. The walk is fairly easy.

Join us to learn more about Cork's secretive mammals.

We look forward to seeing you!
