Rockpool School - On Tour!

About

Rockpool School - On Tour!

UPDATE!!! - Due to the overwhelming response we have now added extra sessions to the programme. Due to demand they are likely to book up fast. See details of the additional session below.

Beach Academy Wales will be touring their pop-up 'Rockpool School' across Vale of Glamorgan beaches this summer. 20 dates have been planned where families can rock up and find out more about rockpool habitats, the creatures that live in them and how to handle them correctly. Families then borrow the equipment they need to explore these underwater worlds on our doorstep at no charge.

Families visiting the beach can enjoy learning and discovering about marine nature on their beach day out and how to conserve these habitats for the future.

All sessions must be pre-booked direct at: www.beachacademywales.com. Click on Book now, then 'Coming up - Vale Beaches'. Track and trace in place.  Sessions include use of equipment
