Pond dip day at Snelsmore Common Country Park
Grab a dipping net and join ranger Keith to delve into the depths of the dipping pond at Snelsmore Common.
Discover what lives in the pond and how to identify them. Ponds are a fascinating habitat, containing a large number of different plants and animals. The invertebrates found vary from large airborne insects like dragonflies, down to small slimy flatworms and their comparatively alien nature makes them a source of fascination for children.
Pond dipping can be messy, so make sure your children are suitably attired for the task and the weather. It is recommended to wear old clothes and sensible shoes, be they trainers or wellies.
Sessions at 10am & 2pm (sessions last one hour).
£3.50 per person, booking essential. Please call Thatcham Nature Discovery Centre.
