Valentine's Day Nature Talk at Tralee Bay Wetlands Eco & Activity Park

Join us at Tralee Bay Wetlands this Valentine’s Day to see our local birds in action and to celebrate the importance of wetland ecosystems and the services they provide. Learn about the wonderful stories of their love lives from our ecologists.

On this day we will be venturing around our lake and wetlands marsh to find what birds are hiding nearby. After this walk we hope you will be able to identify some of our local birds and enjoy your local habitats more.

Tralee Bay Wetlands together with Kerry County Museum will mark and celebrate St Bridget’s Day tomorrow Tuesday, February 1st 2022.

We invite you to commemorate the day with us and learn to make traditional St. Brigid’s crosses in our wetlands. You will discover where the rushes grow and a hear about their heritage and role in their habitat. Join Alan Balfe, Centre Ecologist for Tralee Bay Wetlands and Claudia Kohler and Hazel Ramsey of Kerry County Museum to learn more and go on a most interesting guided walking tour of the wetlands, collecting rushes on route, to make your very own St Bridget’s Day cross afterwards for your home. 

“A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they shall never sit."


The benefits of planting native trees cannot be emphasised enough. The presence of trees in our locality protect and improve not just the physical environment and its biodiversity but also our own health and wellbeing.
