Well known  nature enthusiasts Andrew Cox and Denis Cullen of the Irish Wildlife Trust  and Karin Dubsky and Brian Jacob of Coastwatch will explain the value of these wetland habitats  and the threats from climate change and invasive species.  Meet at the car park along the shingle ridge leading to the dunes at 12 noon.
