Events and Activities

Throughout the year we organise and attend a huge number of events. The volunteers are hugely generous with their time.

The events will depend on the season. During the Autumn and Winter, we host talks and presentations by renowned lecturers, professors, TV personalities and friends of the group. We will also host film nights for the up and coming environmental film release as well as our Christmas quiz which is always a fun night!        

In the Spring and Summer we get out and about: Surveys, rockpool rambles, snorkels, dives, wildlife boat trips, Seaquest Sundays, wildlife walks, plankton days, crabbing, social get togethers and nights in the pub!

Then there are the events organised by others that we are invited to. We have a stall that we take to other events such as the Fish Festival, Cornwall Pride, Newquay Orchard Spring Fayre, Marine Days and wildlife bioblitzes.



And don’t forget all the beach cleans run by Newquay Beach Care. We also recently bought a kayak for the group, made from recycled materials and commissioned by Ocean Odyssey. Cleans can now happen on the water.

Oh and the art.
