The StreamScapes Ilen Project, which has been produced with support from West Cork Community Development, represents the ideal in StreamScapes methodology. A small critical mass of an entire River Catchment & Coastal Zone’s population has been directly engaged in theoretical and practical lessons in Aquatic & Biodiversity education, supported by a dedicated Project Booklet (including insert map of the River Ilen Catchment & Coastal Zone). The project included a Festival where participants exhibited their project work and celebrated their aquatic and biodiversity resources (see Photo Gallery Link below). 807 participants so far and counting!
