Community Dipping In

Pond dipping sessionPond dipping fun!

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust received funding from the BIG Lottery to develop a community pond dipping station - an exciting new resource for local community groups to use.

This project provides community groups with an outdoor classroom stocked with all the necessary equipment; ID guides, interpretation and information to ensure a memorable visit to the nature reserve. We also hope discovering the benefits of having a pond will inspire action in the community. Ponds may be small but they are an important part of our landscape and create hotspots for a huge range of wildlife. Making a pond is one of the best ways to quickly and easily attract a variety of wildlife into your own backyard, whilst also providing a fascinating resource for all ages.
