Look for bugs, butterflies, wildflowers, small mammals, reptiles, birds and marine life in rock pools. You are welcome to join us for an hour or all day with a range of specialists and experts to help identify everything we find. You never know what we might find on our doorsteps.

Unfortunately dogs are not welcome at this event.
