Kids given chance to explore pondlife

Kids will have the chance to examine pondlife at Colliers Wood in Moorgreen this weekend.

The free event, on Sunday June between 10.30am and 3pm is part of the Friends of Colliers Wood Fun With Learning Programme and is a fantastic way for children to learn about the environment.

The group will collect trays of pond water and using a net, collect the various types of pond life.

Waterfowl, frogs and dragonflies will all be present and there will be various birds to see around the area such as Heron.

Kids should bring a pen, pencil and notebook to record their findings.
