Rock Pooling at New Brighton

A walk onto New Brighton beach to look for the creatures that live in the rock pools
and beach armour. Tube worms, sea anemones, shrimps, and much more besides.
Leaders Margaret Coles and Ian Coote will help catch and identify the creatures
and explain their, often strange, ways of living.
No charge, donations welcome.
Booking not required.
Please wear rubber boots or water shoes with heavy soles as the terrain is stoney and muddy.
Water shoes and short trousers would allow you to enter the water, turn over stones etc.
Children should be eight years or older as it takes patience and the ability to stay still for
at least a minute to allow the well camouflaged creatures to start moving around.
