Kids bio-blitz at RSPB Ham Wall!

There’s a secret world hidden all around us, full of amazing creatures

Join us to find and identify what is lurking in the pond, hiding in the grass or under a stone, or singing from the trees! We will spend some time pond dipping, bug hunting and birdwatching, finding as many animals as we can and recording them as we go along, helping us to create a snapshot of what animals are around at that time in the Mini Marshes and the main path of the reserve.

This event is aimed at families with children aged between 5-12 years. Children must be accompanied and supervised by a responsible adult (18 +) at all times. Please ensure children are supervised at all times. Accompanying adults free. Younger children and teens are permitted and are free but will not be able to participate in the activities. An adult can supervise a maximum of 2 children (which includes any accompanying children).

Book in advance to avoid disappointment.

Additional Information:

Can I bring my dog? No dogs, except registered assistance dogs please.
