Pond Dipping

Monday 6 May to Monday 26 August

10.30 am - 3.30 pm

Price: £3.00 (20% off for RSPB members)

In 2019 we are running a series of supervised pond dipping days. Our fantastic volunteers will be on hand to help you see what you can discover in our underwater world, including the chance to see great crested newt up close. This is the only opportunity visitors will have to [pond dip at Coombes Valley as you need a licence to handle the rare great crested newt.

Pond dipping is one of the RSPB's wild challenges, a free online resource to help families experience and help nature find a home. This is a drop-in event so families can come at any time, once you've finished why not wander down the woodland trail in search of the fairy village where you'll feel like a giant next to the tiny houses? Stop along the way to build a den, make a potion in the mud kitchen, or let your imagination run wild in the story-telling circle and take a ride on our amazing canopy walkway! There's plenty to do for all the family.
