Events at Malham Tarn

Boy looking to see what he has caught in his pond dipping net

We've got a wide range of events to tempt you and get you outdoors and closer to nature at Malham Tarn, so book on to one and get exploring.

Join our rangers and try to complete your 50 Things to do before you're 11¾ list with a bit of pond dipping and discover an underwater world. Lower the net carefully into the edge of the pond and move it slowly through the water to discover the animals living in the depths - make sure you put them in to the water trays provided to keep them alive while you take a closer look. What will you find? Keep your eyes open for tadpoles, small fish and diving beetles!
 
If building is more your type of adventure why not try den building? Follow our rangers to the clearing and select your natural materials found in the woodland to help you create your very own shelter. Don’t forget to build yourself a seat as once your den has been built you can enjoy a spot of lunch in your newly built shelter.
 
If you want to find out more about Malham Tarn why not join our rangers on a flower walk and discover the wide variety of hay meadow flowers that brighten up the fields in late spring/early summer or discover more about the night sky with our star gazing events. Maybe you could be more adventurous and get your bike out to learn the basics of mountain biking with us to help you enjoy exploring on two wheels!
 
Whatever your interests we hope to have an event that tempts you.
