Pond Dipping


Pond dipping this will be a fascinating activity that will allow the kids to explore the hidden world beneath the surface of the bushcraft pond. Armed with nets and containers, the little adventurers gently dip into the water to capture glimpses of aquatic life. From darting water beetles to graceful dragonfly nymphs, each dip unveils a diverse array of creatures, both big and small. Pond dipping isn’t just about observation; it’s a hands-on learning experience that fosters curiosity and understanding of aquatic ecosystems. As the kids carefully examine their finds, they will gain insights into the interconnected web of life that thrives in and around ponds.
