Nature is taking over! As we spend more time in our homes, we want to encourage families, young people, and adults to explore their natural environment and join us for a BioBlitz!

You will explore Aston Hall’s beautiful gardens and the wider park recording the plants, animals, and insects you find. Our Natural Science Curator will help you identify and record your finds.

Each ticket holder will receive a Bug Collector take home, to help study their finds, as well as a spotter’s guide and worksheet. Get hands on with animal specimens and activities to explore the science behind Climate Change.

What is a BioBlitz?

A BioBlitz focuses on a specific area, finding and identifying as many species as possible in a short period of time giving a snapshot of the area’s biodiversity.

The data people collect can also be shared with regional wildlife data collecting programmes and apps which all help us better understand the world around us and our contribution to it.

Get involved and get recording!

Pre-booking is advised to guarantee access to the event. Only children taking part require a ticket, adult access to the gardens is free.

Aston Hall will feel a little different to usual, but we are sure you will enjoy your visit and we look forward to welcoming you.

Staff on site will be wearing PPE or working behind perspex screens, we have enhanced cleaning schedules in place, and we will be asking you to observe social distancing guidelines at all times whilst on site.

Contactless card payments are preferred in order to limit personal interaction but cash will be accepted.

Please remember to bring a face covering for use in our indoor spaces and please note that you are limited to purchasing a maximum of 6 tickets per transaction from the same household/support bubble.
