This is our programme for 2020. Please check our Facebook page for final details or any changes; and for some events how to book a place. For example where we say ‘a Bude beach’ we will decide closer to the date whether we will be at Crooklets, Middle or Breakwater beach; or we may need to change the date or time.
This year we will be launching ‘Marine Café’ an informal quarterly public discussion led by a local marine expert.
Events marked ‘YSBR’ are organised by Cornwall Wildlife Trust’s Your Shore Beach Rangers where you will find more details closer to the date.
BMG rock-pooling events start at the times stated.
Accompanied children are welcome at rock-pooling events – but please no dogs
Please contact BMG if you have any questions. And we have information about our local marine life on our website
