Event Overview

Tuesday 27th October 2020 10.30am-12.00pm and 1.30pm-3.00pm
Explore and find out more about the creepy crawlies of the Nene Wetlands, both above and below the water!

Our popular outdoor school holiday sessions are back!

Come and join us in our designated education area on Tuesday over October half-term and see what amazing creatures you can discover.

Get up close to the weird and wonderful invertebrates that live beneath the surface of the lakes during our pond dipping activity and then compare these to the creepy crawlies and flying insects that live in the meadows and woodland.

Due to Covid-19, these sessions will be running a little differently from normal.
