Wild Wednesdays - Minibeast Mania

Our 'Wild Wednesday' family events taking place every Wednesday during the school holidays!

The world of minibeasts might be small with their microhabitats and small stature, but that doesn’t make them any less mighty.

Do you know your crickets from your grasshoppers, bugs from beetles and centipedes from millipedes?

If not, or you just want to see what's living in the hidden world of minibeasts, then come and join us to explore the natural habitat of land minibeasts! The afternoon will include the chance to go on your own minibeast safari, collecting them using the equipment provided for a close up view of our marvellous minibeasts.
