This will be a two day event. We will be exploring some sites in the Slieve Aughty Mountains and will be looking for new records or re-locating old records of filmy ferns and other species by following clues in old geological maps. Along the way we will look at fens with Eriophorum gracile (Slender Cottongrass), rock outcrops with filmy ferns and old Oak woods.
