Pond dipping and Bug basement sessions

What wildlife will you discover in our pond or under the logs in the woods?

  • Booking essential
  • Admission applies

Come along and join in with our pond dipping and bug basement sessions, running at weekends at 11:00 and 14:00 (see our What's On board when you arrive for which activity is first), and discover all sorts of wildlife that calls our waterways and ponds, or woodland floor, home. From dragonfly larvae, caddisfly larvae and pond mites in the water, to millipedes, beetles and spiders on the woodland floor, there's a whole wild world to discover! Tickets cover both sessions in the day. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
