It’s back for 2017…Step away from the TV, put down your phone and get ready to explore the great outdoors at our 2017 Bioblitz event.
Our Bioblitz is a weekend filled with nature. Find out about our mammal monitoring and take part in some nature spotting, this bank holiday weekend will be a chance to discover the natural world that’s all around you.
What is a Bioblitz? It’s a 24 hour period with the challenge to record as many species as we can! It’s a great event for the family to get involved with no matter what you know about the natural world. We have experts on hand to help you identify the species you find and all the discoveries contribute to a scientific study on the health of our environment.
Focusing on native species, our foot safari will be home to our safari basecamp tent. Come inside to discover the wonders of our brilliant native birds, marvellous mammals, plants, pollinators and our fabulous freshwater life. Get the kids involved with making their own bug hotels and get your hands dirty creating your very own bird feeder. With workshops, activities and objects to explore, this is sure to be a place of wonder and fun!
Become a nature detective, get your explorer hats on and get stuck in. Along with our safari basecamp activities we’ll be running nature walks to see our wonderful wildlife. This is your chance to hear from our wildlife experts and understand how so many of the animals you find in your own back garden play an important role in our ecosystem. Take part in our monitoring events to discover these animals and their natural habitats for yourself! How many different species will you see!
Best of all, this event is included in your admission! We’re opening our doors to the young, young at heart, the adventurers and great explorers. Look out for our safari basecamp tent on our foot safari and come along and be amazed by what you can find right on your doorstep!
