Harold’s Cross Nature Walk

Our fourth classes were delighted to get a chance to go on a nature walk last week in Harold’s Cross Park. We were invited to go on a walk by Dublin City Council and were guided around the park by a biologist called Éanna Ní Lamhna. She showed us some of the different trees in the park and the wildlife and insects that live amongst them. We saw lime trees, copper beeches, lodgepole pines, plum trees, 5 needle pines, holly trees and a handkerchief tree. We also learned some bird calls and heard a wren calling in the trees. It was great fun.
