The Little Things Matter Workshop 

Date: Saturday June 29 2019 Time: 10 AM – 12 pm? 

Venue:  Stella Maris Centre, Kilmore Quay, Wexford

This workshop is FREE – pre registration essential 

This workshop explores the incredible contribution phytoplankton make to life on Earth. Phytoplankton, found in oceans and freshwater basin ecosystems all across the world, are the base of the marine food web and produce over 40% of the world’s oxygen through photosynthesis.

After an introductory presentation participants will collect samples of marine and freshwater phytoplankton from local sources and examine them to better understand the supportive role these unseen plants play in our ecosystem.

This workshop is led by Lorraine Archer, a Phycologist specialising in taxonomic and molecular skills for the identification of marine phytoplankton and freshwater micro-algae. Lorraine is currently Research Laboratory Coordinator at the Plant Metabolism Laboratory, University of Cambridge. 

The workshop has a maximum of 20 places. Anyone interested in participating should contact mark.clare@gmail to register.

This workshop is part of An Urgent Enquiry – an artist’s residency exploring biodiversity in County Wexford, led by artist Mark Clare and supported by Wexford County Council.
