Summer Holiday Activities – Pond dipping, Wildlife and Pebble Painting*

Tuesday, 27th July 2021, 11:00 - 12:30

Summer Holiday Activities – Pond dipping, Wildlife and Pebble Painting*
Explore the wildlife in our garden pond and create pebble reminders of your favourite critters

Pond dipping using nets and trays of water is a fun and simple way to explore the aquatic life in our garden pond.

You will be able to observe and identify (using our guides) a variety of pond creatures and be able to record your favourite by painting them onto little pebbles you can take home. Ponds, even small container ones, are great for improving biodiversity in your garden. We will take a look at some of the things you can try at home.

Tickets: £5 per child with one carer, refundable deposit (on attendance) – 8 spaces available

For ages 5 – 10 years

Please book via the Eventbrite booking system below.
