New family activities are on offer at the seaside this year with Dorset Wildlife Trust.  Sponsored by  Rockley Adventure, Seashore Explorer back-packs with ideas, equipment and information have been created for families looking for something to do when visiting the Purbeck Marine Wildlife Reserve at Kimmeridge Bay.

Among the suggestions are mini-beast hunting, seabird spotting, fossil rubbing and eco-crabbing, with everything provided to make things as easy as possible.  A rockpool-friendly crab line, seashore ID guides and magnifying bug pots are among the contents of the back-pack.  Some of the resources are yours to take away at the end of the day while others are returned to be used again.  A small hire charge of £5 covers the cost of replacing items.

The Marine Centre at Kimmeridge Bay will be open during half term from 12 to 4pm, except for Monday.  For more information visit dorsetwildlifetrust.org.uk
