Events for everyone

 

We run events throughout the year.

From really popular low tide walks to wildflower pop ups, school visits and family days during the holidays.

This year many of our events have been developed through our Tideway partnership.

This means we can offer you so much more!

Need to know

Low tide walks are led by our lead conservationist. Advance booking is essential to secure a place. We'll  provide waders, a waterproof and a walking stick and suggest you wear old clothes. You need to be reasonably fit as you will be walking on the bed of a wild river. Children from aged 9 upwards are welcome.
