Here you'll find a little information about the types of events that we run, if you want to find out what is actually on offer and when then visit our Events & Activities Page

Rockpool Safaris & Seashore Detective - Ever wondered what the weird critter is attached to the rock, when you've visited the beach?  Now's your chance to find out!  We'll meet some of our less well known residents; discovering Sea slugs, Squat lobsters, Pipe fish, Dog whelks, Strawberry Anemones, Starfish, Clingfish, crabs and much more! We'll also learn about the not so boring Limpet and seaweeds such as Gutweed, Sea Lettuce & Kelp!

Insect SafarisCreepy Crawlies are not everyone's cup of tea but we are pretty confident we can change your mind!  Don't be put off if you don't feel the love for the bugs, come along, learn a little about their lives and you may just find it in your heart to view them a little differently!

Wildlife Walks - Why not join a member of our team for a guided walk?  These are a fantastic opportunity to explore the wild side of Scilly and get to know some more about our local plants and wildlife.

Wildlife Safaris - The Isles of Scilly Wildlife Trust team up with St Agnes Boating to bring you Wildlife Safaris every Wednesday; departing from St Agnes Quay at 13:00 from April through to September.

Trips usually take in the Western Rocks where we expect to see Puffins, Manx shearwaters, Guillemots, Razorbills, Shags and Fulmars, Dolphins, Porpoise, Sunfish, Seals & much more (during the breeding season).

You will also discover the fascinating world of Marine Plastics and learn about the work that the Trust is doing to clean up Scilly's beaches as well as the debris effect on our wildlife.

Move Scilly - We work closely with Move Scilly to facilitate events for local families; encouraging them to get more active, and be more active, together.  Although some of these events are "closed" events, many are open to the public so anyone can join in.  Move Scilly events will be clearly promoted as such and may be slightly different from our "normal" events, as there will be elements of activity for attendees to join in on too; whether that's star jumps at low tide events, touching your toes on Insect Safaris or racing on our Rock Trails.  Don't let it put you off there will still be plenty of nature-filled fun; whether you're a big kid or you've got little ones to entertain!
