About the event

Shoresearch is The Wildlife Trusts' national citizen science survey of the intertidal shore, the exciting world of extremes where the sea meets the land. It's a great way to explore your local coast, learn more about the wildlife found there and add to our understanding of this important habitat.

We'll be recording everything we find and helping contribute to citizen science whilst we're at it! We'll also take part in a Timed Species Search, hunting for specific seaweeds and animals in a set amount of time!

We will continue to follow Government guidelines, maintaining 2m social distance at all times and we ask that participants do so as well. We will also be limiting numbers on each event so booking is therefore essential:

£5/child *

£5/adult*

*includes Eventbrite booking fee.

All children must be accompanied by an adult and we suggest this event is suitable for children aged 4 years+.

Please wear wellington boots or other suitable sturdy shoes which can get wet and please leave your rockpool nets at home as we follow the Seashore Code and use our hands and buckets instead (tubs provided).

Please note, National Trust car parking charges apply at Wembury Beach car park. The beach car park can fill up very quickly on hot, sunny days so please leave plenty of time to park and aim to arrive at the Centre 10 mins before the event starts.

Cancellation Policy – requested refunds will be automatically issued up to 1 day before the event starts, minus the Eventbrite booking fee. If the event is cancelled by us due to poor weather, you will receive a full refund.
