It’s exciting, healthy, educational and cheap. So, why not take the kids rock pooling with the experts this half-term or join a beach clean?
There are some fantastic low tides on the Friday 20th and Saturday 21st of February – so even if you can’t join one of these events, check out my rockpooling tips and beach guide and let me know what you find.
For grown-ups there are some great talks happening this coming week. See Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s events page.
If you’re aware of any other events, please let me know and I’ll add them.
I’m looking forward to seeing lots of people at Looe on Friday.
