Activities for Children at Rodley Nature Reserve

Family Activity Guide: Currently not available

Pond Dipping 2021: There is no public pond dipping at the present time. The matter is under continuous review and it is hoped we may be able to resume public pond dipping on a limited and supervised basis later this year.

Mini Beast Hunt: See what you can find in our mini beast “homes” – just lift the lids and see what’s there but mind your fingers when lowering the lid! “Homes” can be found at several points around the Reserve – can you find them and what can you see?

Bird Watching: Binoculars are currently not available for hire due to Covid-19. Hides remain closed at the present time but the open viewing screens have low viewing points suitable for children.

Events for Families:  There are no events currently planned in 2021 due to Covid-19.
