A special event will be held this Friday to give people the chance to learn more about life in and around the River Foyle.

The River Discovery Day will be held at Riverwatch in Prehen on Friday 14th August. It will run from 12pm to 4pm and admission is free.

There will be a variety of exhibitions and activities to show visitors more about the variety of plants and animals which live in and around our local rivers. People will be encouraged to try their hand at fishing, art, nature trails, river safaris and other environmental activities and get up close and personal with birds of prey, marine life and moths.

Gillian Simpson at Loughs Agency said: “The River Discovery Day will help visitors realise the variety of life that the River Foyle supports and the range of activities the river can offer. We are delighted to host this event for the fourth year and encourage people to come along.”
