Wonderful Wiggly Worms!

Greenwich Peninsula Ecology Park

11th April 2024 : see overview

Free Easter holiday activity for families and children themed on wonderful worms!

2 sessions

11am to 12

Have a go at the noble art of worm charming!  We will be testing various techniques to entice worms to the surface of the ground. We will also be digging a hole to see what kinds of worms we can find and find out about their vital role in keeping soil healthy.

2 to 3pm

Make our very own worm out of clay wit all the correct body parts (there’s a lot more to worms than you think!).  Then create a pop sock worm and make it poo!


The worm charming will take place outside so dress for the weather! !

The site has a visitor centre and toilets, including accessible toilet with baby changing facilities.
