A Rockpool workshop is taking place in Falmouth in September.

It will be at Falmouth Marine School on Monday, September 16.

Join wildlife experts from Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Environmental Records Centre on an exploration into the hidden habitats scattered along the rocky Cornish shores. Learn about the rock-pool-inhabiting creatures of the intertidal coastline, from periwinkles and crabs to colourful anemones and fish.

After an introduction to the huge array of species that can be found in Cornwall, there will be a trip to the nearby shore to see how many species can be found and identified. By the end of the workshop participants should be able to recognise Cornwall’s most common rockpool species, as well as the more unusual species that need protecting.
