Microscopic Marvels Digital Microscope Walk

Explore the natural habitat of RSPB Lakenheath Fen in a whole new experience. On this relaxed and friendly guided walk, you will have the opportunity to see the incredible details found in nature that would normally go unnoticed.

You will be provided with a 40X microscopic clip-on lens (that work with almost all modern smartphones) to use during the walk. This will allow you to get an incredibly detailed view of the natural world. You will explore a wide range of interesting organisms such as lichen, plants, and insects in a level of detail we never normally get to see.

Using the clip-on lens will also allow you to take amazing macro photography pictures using your very own phone!

This walk will be led by David Atthowe, of Reveal Nature. See Reveal Nature’s amazing gallery of Microscopic images HERE.
