Dynamic Dunes

Explore the dune system and gain an understanding of it's important function as a sea defense. Learn more about this dynamic system and the issues of coastal squeeze experienced on the Formby coast. Gain an understanding of how land use can effect the environment. 

This Kit is ideal for upper KS2 and KS3 - It has a Leaders clip board and 5 more for group leaders, so classes should be split into 5 or 6 groups. A map shows key points that match each page of the instruction booklet. These resources give explanations of what to do, the equipment needed to do it and record it. There is also an A4 lamiated photo book which shows coastal change here over time.

The ticket you will get when you book will provide all of the pre-visit information you will need and risk assessment guidance notes. You can access the site to risk assess your visit without charge by showing your ticket at any time between booking and the day of your visit. We require formal groups to have Public Liability Insurance with a minimum indemnity limit of £5,000,000 and to complete a Risk Assessment for their group. 

Please ensure you have booked access for your group along side this kit. We will have to refuse your group access if we are fully booked and will not be able to refund the kit on the day under these circumstances. The cost to hire this kit is £30 with a refundable cash deposit of £30 to pay on arrival which will be returned which will be refunded once the kit is returned.

This kit will only be available on days when the tide is out between 10am and 1pm to ensure you can use the beach.

Please note: You will need to pay a deposit by cash or card when you collect your kit to cover any loses.
