Fabulous Fish

Fabulous Fish


Ever wondered what is lurking in the ponds at Newport Wetlands? Join us pond dipping and you'll be amazed at the weird and wonderful wildlife we'll find underwater. You might discover an alien-like dragonfly nymph, or even a stickleback fish. We will also be building miniature rafts and seeing if they sink or float! But don't worry - you won't get wet! There will be fishy games and crafts to round off your fabulous day.

Drop-in from 10.30am - 12 and 2pm - 3.30pm.
