Wildlife Watch

Wildlife Watch for all ages – Dale Fort

The Field Study Centre at Dale Fort will be running a series of Wildlife Watch events on the 2nd Saturday of each month from April through to October. Each event is around 2hrs in duration – here’s how the organiser describes it…

 

“The event is aimed at families and we will be introducing them to the microscopic life of plankton found in the seas just of the coast, as well as in the seaweed. We will be using the microscopes at the fort to look into pre-collected seawater and bits of seaweed and seeing how different (often outright bizarre) this life looks to the plants and animals that we are used to. I will also be talking about the various organisms that people find and (hopefully) getting people interested and aware of the microscopic world. Using microscopes allows people to look at some really cool and unusual animals that they would never otherwise be able to see.”

 

The scheduled dates are: 9 April, 7 May, 11 June, 9 July, 6 August, 10 September, 8 October
