Walltown Frogs & Flapjacks

Discover weird and wonderful life below the surface

Join Wild Intrigue to spy on life below the surface of Walltown Quarry Country Park’s ponds in Northumberland National Park.

On this guided ‘aquatic safari’ you will discover the Walltown ponds, and the fascinating creatures that swim, hide, hunt and morph under cover of these underrated habitats. But leave those swimsuits at home! You will have the use of nets and trays to carefully explore the small (but mighty) creatures that lurk beneath. From busy amphibians to feisty dragonfly nymphs, and even the LOUDEST animal on earth! Who knows what intriguing life you will discover beneath the surface. 

Local flapjacks provided. Suitable for ages 5 and above (this event is suitable for adult groups too!). All under 18’s must be accompanied by an adult ticket holder.
