Plentiful Pond Life
10am - 12pm & 1pm - 3pm
£6 per child
In collaboration with Green Underwing, share a hands-on pond dipping activity meeting diving beetles, common newts, and hawker dragonflies!
Discover the amazing wildlife that lives in ponds with a hands-on pond dipping activity, encountering incredible creatures face to face! Learn about the curious life cycles of different creatures including great diving beetles, common newts, and hawker dragonflies. We will also go on a dragonfly safari looking for the adults, which are spectacular predators of the air. The session will end with some pond-related art and craft in which children can make models of dragonflies or caddisflies.

This family-friendly session is suitable for ages 4 to 10 years. Children outside of this age range are welcome to participate, however, some of the activities may not be suitable or of interest. Parents and guardians are required to stay with their children during the session.
Please bring suitable clothing for outdoor activities as the session will take place come rain or shine.

Session delivered by naturalist Phil Taylor from Green Underwing Wildlife Education. More information available from: www.greenunderwing.co.uk
