About the activity

Join us on a hunt for water minibeasts! We’ll be stream dipping in the River Lud that flows through Hubbards Hills public park. This will involve getting the kids in the water with nets to try and catch some invertebrates such as freshwater shrimp. We’ll be bringing all the necessary nets, trays, magnifying glasses and guides so just remember your wellies!

Never been stream dipping before? If you’re not sure what to expect why not get in touch with us beforehand.
