Water is an exciting habitat, there is a huge diversity of pond life. The children will be amazed to see what they can catch with a net in our dipping pond; stickleback fish, water boatmen, dragonfly nymphs, water scorpions, whirligig beetles and lots more.
After a demonstration by the Ranger, the children will work in groups, taking it in turns to dip with a net and put the creatures in a tray. Towards the end of the session the Ranger will help identify what’s been caught and look at how the animals are adapted to their watery environment and investigate their food chains and lifecycles.
