The Diatom Weekend

10/06/23 - 11/06/23
10:00 - 18:00

Mudflats are often full of diatoms. On dried-out mud, they look like dark brownish spots, but under the microscope their shapes are very different and they are beautiful to look at.

The Zwin guides will take you out to search for diatoms and install a microscope so that you can take a (much) closer look at these exciting creatures.

This introduction to the wonderful world of diatoms is an exciting activity for children.

Guide present at the Zwin plain from 11:30 to 17:00
