Join us on our renovated platform for our family pond dipping sessions this summer. Come along and find some of the most fantastic and ferocious beasts that live beneath the surface – will you be lucky enough to find mighty dragonfly nymphs, water scorpions or the magnificent great silver diving beetles? Take care and you may even spot the family of water voles that live in the pond. Our expert volunteers will be on hand to help show you what to do and identify what you find, and all equipment is provided. Each session will last for 30 minutes, with sessions starting every 15 minutes from 10 am to 3.30 pm, apart from over lunch. Only one family per session, so there will be a maximum of three families taking part at any time.
