Saltmarsh Safari

Booking essential

Ever wondered what creatures lurk in the saltmarsh at Marshside? Come along and join our fascinating Saltmarsh Safari to get a little closer to the tidal creatures of the Ribble Estuary. 

If crawling through the grass armed with a pooter to catch minibeasts, or sieving mud in search of worms sounds like fun, then this is the perfect activity for you!

Please wear suitable clothing and footwear (ideally wellies) as this is an exposed site and can be very muddy. Children are welcome but must be accompanied by a legal parent or guardian. Unfortunately, this activity is not suitable for pushchairs or wheelchairs. Please bring binoculars if you have them.

Booking essential by phoning the Ribble Discovery Centre.


Meet in the RSPB reserve car park on Marine Drive, Southport (next to the old sand works)
