Pond Dipping with a Ranger

May 28 @ 10:30 - 12:00


Join the Stanwick Lakes rangers for a pond dipping session this May half term!

Using nets, trays and magnifying glasses and guided by one of the rangers, come and discover the creatures that live in the ponds at Stanwick Lakes! After a safety briefing and an introduction to the creatures you’re likely to find, you’ll head to the pond dipping platform where you will be given a pond dipping kit! The Ranger will be on hand with identification keys to help you work out which creatures you have caught as well as to share knowledge about the pond ecosystem and the many species that call it home.

Sessions last approx. 30 minutes and a responsible adult must be present throughout. Meet at the Ranger Cabin 5 mins before your chosen ticketed start time.

Please check the website on the day of your session for information regarding flooding – wellies may be advisable!

Pond dipping is most suitable for children aged 3+, however, because a parent or guardian must be present at all times, they accept parent/guardian discretion.
Activities may be altered or cancelled due to adverse weather conditions or other factors at the Ranger’s discretion.
