Botany welcomes public as part of Discover Research Dublin


On Friday 25th September, as part of Discover Research Dublin, Botany welcomed the curious, both young and old, to an open evening to interact with and participate in some of the research currently on-going in the Department. The event ‘Saving the World’ introduced people to bees and pond beasties and showed people what happens in a herbarium and how a wetland works. We had honey tastings, mead, cider, cake and cocktails and we played some ecosystem jenga! We also encouraged everyone to become pollinator-friendly gardeners and citizen scientists.
