Our circuit from Dublin City Centre will include a great number of natural science highlights around the Wicklow Mountains National Park, Glencree, the beautiful Glenealo Valley, Hollywood Glen and Blessington Lakes. Pete Coxon is a world leader in Quaternary research and teaching and he brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to this meeting.
