#PondWatch 2023 will take place online on Saturday 17 June and Sunday 18 June.
We are encouraging everyone to get out and explore their local ponds whether they are lucky enough to have one in their garden or have some in their local park or nature reserves.
Share your photos and stories on social media; we can’t wait to hear what you find!
Activities will continue to be added to this page in the lead up to the event.
We want to hear from you!
For #PondWatch 2023 you and your ponds are the star of the show!
This PondWatch weekend we want to showcase your ponds over our social media channels, providing excellent pond-sipration! We are asking you to get in touch with a photo of your pond and to tell us a little bit about it.
When did you create the pond?, what inspired you to create it?, what’s the best dragonfly you have seen?
Pond Creation Top Tips
We will be sharing content across our social media channels, jam packed with advise for creating and maintaining your pond!

Showcasing your ponds!
