Join us on St Anne's beach as we discover the mysterious creatures living within the mud of the Ribble Estuary!

We will be digging around to find all sorts of hidden animals such as worms, shrimps, snails and fascinating tellin shells, which bury themselves with a giant foot! We will be able to help you ID and learn about your finds.

Please remember to wear wellies or old shoes and prepare to get muddy! We will meet on the beach, at the bottom of the slipway to the left hand side of the car park (if you are facing the beach). Look for our flag!
