Our friends at Clara Bog Visi tor Centre are hosting an event on Tuesday, 8 Oc tober at 8 pm. Michelle McKeon Bennett, a scientist with a particular interest in space and a Clara native will give a presentation on the applications of Clara Bog plants for living in space. Michelle has worked with NASA in the Kennedy Space Centre, USA, investigating the application of Sphagnum Moss for living in space.

A visit to Clara Bog Nature Reserve and Visi tor Centre is also an opportunity to learn more about bogs and the important role they can play in combating climate change.
