Family Day on Bull Island to highlight Dublin’s Wetlands

Dublin City Council is hosting a public celebration of Dublin’s Wetlands this weekend with a series of free family-friendly events. A highlight will be Family Day at Bull Island UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, Dublin’s largest and most significant wetland, from 12 noon until 3pm this Sunday.

Activities include walks, talks, arts and crafts and displays, many of which will be held in the Bull Island Interpretative Centre.  The event promises to be a great family day out and an opportunity for Dubliners to visit the Island and learn from the experts how Bull Island is constantly growing and changing.
