Aquatic Adventure

Discover the creatures that live in and around a freshwater pond

    Take a closer look at the water boatman, giant water bug, dragonfly nymph and other aquatic insects that many people have never seen. Observation in larval and adult stages makes metamorphosis believable. Find out how these animals have adapted to life underwater, and how they are all connected to each other. This program encourages hands-on participation through net sampling of bottom sediments. Don't worry, we are also likely to see frogs and fish. Book a school field trip
