Thorndon Country Park pebble walk with RockwatchJoin Rockwatch for a Pebble Hunt at Thorndon Country Park on

Saturday 11 June 2.00 pm

Every Pebble tells a Story!  Come along and unearth the story of a pebble from its origins 80 million years ago!  You’ll learn how to identify the 80 million year old pebbles dumped by floods from a massive ice-cap 450,000 years ago. You’ll also work out how to use the evidence in the Park today to work out past global climate changes. 

The Pebble Hunt will take about 2 hours but you can opt out at any time.  


Children must be accompanied by an adult so please buy tickets for children and accompanying adult/s.

Bookings are closed for this event.
