This field is required

Put on your wellies to discover the biodiversity of plants and animals. You will be digging in the sand, searching on and under rocks and seaweed, and in rockpools, all with the aid of a scavenger hunt, bucket and net.

These field trips are suitable all ages from 5 years. Adults must accompany and be responsible for their children and the workshops should take around an hour and a half.

The workshop is approximately 1.5 hours long.

Participants are asked to wear wellies or shoes that you don’t mind getting wet. You should also wear long trousers, and not shorts as the rocks can be sharp and slippy. Also bring along a waterproof jacket or sunscreen and buckets and spades.
